Upload Error: The extension package size ‘26272573 bytes’ exceeds the maximum package size ‘26214400 bytes’

 

In Azure DevOps server, there is a limit for package size of ~26 MB. When one tries to upload an extension with package size beyond 26 mb in marketplace, they see a similar error as below:

How to resolve?

Increase the limit by running below query against the AzureDevOps_Configuration. The below query increases the limit to 30 MB.

DECLARE @keyvalues dbo.typ_keyvaluepairstringtablenullable;

INSERT @keyvalues

VALUES ('#\Configuration\Service\Gallery\LargeExtensionUpload\MaxPackageSizeMB\', '30')

 

exec prc_UpdateRegistry 1, @keyvalues

 

To develop an extension, refer the official documentation below:

Cheers!!
