Oracle EPM Workspace – HTTP 404.13 Request exceeds content length

I don’t think you will get this error, but if you got it and then if you are on this post, you now have an answer to solve it 🙂

Now you’ll be thinking “How did this guy get the error?”

I always try to break things (and Fix them later). I was trying to add a MIME TYPE for MP4 files, so that I can upload Video file in Workspace. If you are interested in knowing what MIME is have a look here.

You can add a new MIME TYPE by Navigating to Administer->Reporting and Analysis -> MIME Types in Workspace.

I did add one and then tried to load an MP4 file. During the upload process I got an error (which I’ve never seen before)

“HTTP Error 404.13 – Not Found
The request filtering module is configured to deny a request that exceeds the request content length.”

The good thing is it provides the article and evens lists a solution 🙂 (didn’t test my GoogleFu :))

The solution is to edit applicationHost.config under C:WindowsSystem32inetsrvConfig and update <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength=”yournumber” />

The bad thing is it won’t work 🙁

I’m not sure why it doesn’t update setting in IIS, you’ve to manually change the content length in IIS Manager.

Login to IIS Manager and click “Request Filtering”

Click “Edit Feature Settings”

Update Maximum allowed content length to a big number. (I updated it to 100000000 = 100 MB)

Once the update is done, I could upload a big MP4 file and share it with my users 🙂
