Dealing with large JBS file uploads in User Management

Issue: When trying to import large JBS files into User Management with the Source set to "Uploaded file", the upload fails.  The upload may fail with the error "Maximum request length exceeded" or may look to run briefly, then returns to the "Run" command.

Solution:  There are two solutions to this issue:

  1. As a workaround, use "Network Folder" and browse to a copy of the JBS file.  The upload issue only occurs when IIS handles the uploaded file.
  2. Modify IIS to handle larger files by default.  Please see instructions below.
