SAP S/4HANA migration cockpit – how to overcome file size limitation when uploading XML files

Hello SAP S/4HANA migration cockpit users,

if you use the XML files to populate the staging tables with data – maybe you come across the hint in the documentation:

The size limit for each file is 100 MB. You can upload multiple XML files at once by using a zip file. Note that the combined size of all the XML files you want to add to the zip file must not exceed 160MB. The maximum permitted size of the zip file is 100MB.

We have prepared a sample code for a file splitter tool that can help splitting big xml files.

Note that this is a sample code only! 

Find all details in Git Hub

Best regards,

Sybille Lackermeier, SAP S/4HANA migration cockpit Product Management

      This is a great mock sample case and can be used by our partners for huge data loads during S/4HANA implementations. Thanks for sharing @Sybille Lackermeier

      Thank you for sharing.

      Just for clarification, the maximum permitted file size is 100mb regardless of being an XML file or .zip file. Is that correct?
