23.6 Managing the File Upload Size Limit

The file upload size limit conserves disk space on your Micro Focus Vibe site because it prevents users from uploading large files to the Vibe site. The default size limit for uploading files into your Vibe site is 2 GB.

Browsers also impose limits on the size of files that can be uploaded. This limit differs depending on which browser you are using to run Vibe.

If you are using Vibe Desktop to upload and download files between user workstations and the Vibe site, see Configuring the Maximum File Size Limit for Vibe Desktop for more information about controlling maximum file size limits.

23.6.1 Modifying the File Upload Size Limit for the Vibe Site

You as the Vibe administrator can increase or decrease this size limit for the Vibe site. Workspace and folder owners can set a file upload size limit for their own workspaces and folders, but the limit in individual workspaces and folders cannot exceed what you set for the Vibe site.

  1. Click your linked name in the upper right corner of the page, then click the Administration Console icon .

  2. Under Management, click File Upload Limits.

  3. In the File Upload Size Limits section, specify the new file upload size limit.

23.6.2 Setting a File Upload Size Limit for Individual Users and Groups

You can assign a file upload size limit to individual users and groups that is different from the site-wide file upload size limit.
