3141220 - PDI File Input Run Limit Size


You want to know if there's a maximum number of instances to be input at once using the File Input functionality from SAP Cloud Applications Studio.


  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio 
  • SAP Business ByDesign 


There's no limitation for the number of records, This however depends on the Business Object(BO) itself.

When the save of the Business Object takes time i.e. if there are so many operations performed on the save and can result in time out. So the number of records uploaded vary from one BO from BO and depends totally on the  application logic there. File Input just builds the modifications and passes it on to the BO.

For example, if you have absl scripts to be executed during the file input, it will multiply the execution time of the script by the number of records you are trying to upload.


You can try to split the data in batches of 1000, or 500, just to ensure everything is processed as you expect.
