DocumentPicker: limited document size while submit

  1. SDK Version: 42.0.1
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): android

this is my code
const _pickDocument = async() => {

    let result = await DocumentPicker.getDocumentAsync({copyToCacheDirectory:false,type:'application/pdf'})


        if (response.type == 'success') {          

            let { name, size, uri, tmp_name, type } = response;

            let nameParts = name.split('.');

            let fileType = nameParts[nameParts.length - 1];

            var fileToUpload = {

              name: name,

              type: mime.getType(fileType),

              size: size,

            //   uri: Platform.OS === 'ios' ? uri : "file://"+uri,

              uri: Platform.OS === 'ios' ? uri : uri,

            //   uri:("file:///"+uri.split("file:/").join("")),


            console.log(fileToUpload, '...............file')






        throw error



const submitDoc= async()=>{

    const url = "your url";


        alert("bagian * wajib diisi");



    setIsLoading(true), docFormData,{


            Accept: 'application/json',











I want to ask if there is a limit in sending a document. Why do the file failed to send to url if the file size is more than 1.8 MB? Is there any way to increase the size limit? Thank you.

Hey @egbertgan, this could be an OS-level restriction but I’m not entirely sure. Have you tried looking to the apple docs? Also, can you share exactly what the logs spit out when trying to select a larger doc?

this is for android and this is the object result

Object {
“name”: “PA824_User_Manual.pdf”, “size”: 2659219,
“type”: “application/pdf”, “uri”: “file:///data/user/0/host.exp.exponent/cache/ExperienceData/%2540egbertgan%252Fmodern-trade/DocumentPicker/e04a8b31-91b1-4b22-92c4-276bdd219a1f.pdf”, }

while this is the result after post

“responseURL”: “your php url”, “data”: “Ada Kesalahan, file PDF corrupt”, “status”: 200, “timeout”: 0, “upload”: XMLHttpRequestEventTarget {}, “withCredentials”: true,

so basically, even though it is a success. My pdf file size become 0 byte and what makes it weird is that if the pdf file less than 1.8MB, the file exist.
