Large file upload fails due to misconfiguration of external reverse proxy (Error parsing upload query args)

0 users found this article helpful


While smaller file uploads work perfectly, a large file upload fails.
It does not happen when the upload happens when accessing Parallels Secure Workspace by navigating to its internal IP address.

In the awingu-file-proxy.service.log, check if you see a similar error message.

Additionally, when using the browser's Developer Tools, a similar issue can be seen in the response to one of the HTTP requests in the Network tab.



This is due to the configuration of the external reverse proxy.



It does not happen when the upload happens directly to Parallels Secure Workspace (with no reverse proxy involved), or if you set the following in the external Nginx reverse proxy config:

location /upload/ {
    client_max_body_size 0;

    proxy_pass http://frontends/upload/;
    proxy_request_buffering off;
    proxy_buffering off;
    proxy_cache off;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
