Payload Limit for HTTP Node

I’m running into errors when attempting to post large payloads (payload includes files) via the HTTP node. I’m assuming I’m running into the max request size limit of axios behind the scenes.

Two questions:

  1. What is the default maximum request size?
  2. Can this default be modified via configuration options?

Hi @IbnJubayr, I am sorry to hear you’re running into trouble.

The maximum payload size could be configured via the N8N_PAYLOAD_SIZE_MAX environment variable in n8n (with a default value of 16 MB). If you’re using a reverse proxy in front of n8n, you might need to adjust its configuration as well.
