If you try and load a large file using SAS Studio on Viya, you may hit a max file size limit as follows:


One or more of the selected files exceeds the 100 MB limit, and will be removed from the upload.

Whilst that is a sensible limit, and the first choice should be to find alternative, better means for uploading large files (such as SSH or FTP), there is of course a workaround.

Simply open SAS Environment Manager, Configuration, Definitions, search for sas.studiov, then update the maxUploadSize property to a new value, in bytes.


Note - you need to be an administrator to access these settings!

An alternative, if you need to upload files into the Viya environment, is to use the SASjs file uploader (web app) - https://sasjs.io/apps/#viya-file-uploader
