Web API Data Limit

Hi,

Is there any limit on the data which can be passed by an external system to Appian through a WebAPI?

Our use case is end user will upload a csv/excel file on portal and after basic validations, it will be passed over to Appian to perform the next level of validations (this process could involve invoking a service as well) and it should respond back with errors if any (one/more for each row uploaded) else save the data and that too respond back in synchronous way.

Any other better way to achieve this?

Thanks.

  • Does the request/response HAVE to be synchronous? You could (for example) send a very simple message to a WebAPI to start a process that then fetches the Excel document (from, say, a shared drive, using FTP or SFTP); which then performs the necessary validation; and then responds (asynchronously) to the end User (through whatever channel makes most sense)
