Q&A: What is the file size limitation on WAF requests?

 Question

What is the file size limitation on WAF requests?

  • What is the max size allowed?
  • Is it possible to have 10MB as request size?

Environment

  • Silverline WAF 
  • WAF Policy

Answer

  • Default maximum limit for WAF request size: 10MB
  • Any request at 10MB or above triggers the violation "Request length exceeds defined buffer size" module of WAF policy
  • If the module is turned off, the"Request length exceeds defined buffer size" violation will no longer trigger
  • The module is typically enforced starting on Blocking Phase 2 -- see WAF Setup: Blocking Phases
