  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft forums. We are pleased to answer your query.

    Azure Mobile Apps SDK uses the body-parser middleware to accept and decode body content in your submission. You can pre-configure body-parser to accept larger file uploads:

    // Set up large body content handling

    app.use(bodyParser.json({ limit: '50mb' }));

    app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({ limit: '50mb', extended: true }));

    For more information, refer this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service-mobile/app-service-mobile-node-backend-how-to-use-server-sdk#a-namecustomapia-custom-apis
