Issue while POSTING bigger .xlsx file using HTTP VBO

  • 1.  Issue while POSTING bigger .xlsx file using HTTP VBO

    Posted 07-28-2021 07:07
    I am using Utility HTTP VBO multipart request for Posting .xlsx file 

    It is working fine with Smaller size but throwing below error with bigger file size (34 MB)

    Error : 
    Could not execute code stage because exception thrown by code stage: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    When I remove the Try catch block , it shows below error 
    Could not execute code stage because exception thrown by code stage: The operation Timed out

    Hence I assume this is related to timeout. It takes around 2 min 10 seconds before it throws error.

    Also it is working from POSTMAN hence nothing wrong from API side

    Is there anything needs to be done to increase timeout limit from Blueprism or is there any other issue ?

    Please assist.

    This is resolved by setting up Request.timeout= 400000 in code
