SharePoint Direct Field


SharePoint Online supports uploading files up to 250 GB. On Appian platform the default file size limit is 1 GB which can be increased to 2 GB.
There are instances where we might be interested in uploading files that are bigger that this limit.

The SAIL component provides the functionality where in files (including one that are bigger than 1GB) are broken down to smaller chunks and uploaded to SharePoint using Microsoft Graph Rest APIs.
Also the files are not stored in Appian and are directly streamed to SharePoint from the SAIL component, this means we don't need to double handle the document.
