I'm trying to connect to a file af about 250 mb but I get the error message:

The size of the data file exceeded the size of the buffer of the file stream.Set the configuration of StreamingBufferSizeMB.

Hi, you can find the instruction here https://support.qlik.com/articles/000051455

Unfortunately this parameter is only configurable in Qlik Sense Enterprise or Qlik Sense Desktop. Qlik Sense Cloud has a fixed limitation of file size loaded from Dropbox
