Unable to upload CI/CD artefacts on gitlab.com - Entity too large

We’re long time gitlab.com users, with our CI/CD pipelines on gitlab, with private runners.
In the last 48 hours, our builds have been failing with:

e[31;1mERROR: Uploading artifacts as "archive" to coordinator... too large archivee[0;m  e[31;1mide[0;m=2141659884 e[31;1mresponseStatuse[0;m=413 Request Entity Too Large e[31;1mstatuse[0;m=413 e[31;1mtokene[0;m=
e[31;1mFATAL: too large                                  e[0;m 

Looking at our quotas for the project, it seems we have been uploading huge artefacts in the past - it seems there’s nearly 400GB of artefacts.

I’ve refined our build script to only upload what we actually need - although that is still circa 1GB per build.

  • Most of the artefacts we’ve stored aren’t needed. How do I free up space?

  • What is the maximum size for artefacts? We’ve been running this build for a long time without issue. Has the size changed recently? Or have we exceeded a quota? (ie., why is this failing now?)

  • Are there options for us to use our own storage for build artefacts, and therefore manage size limits ourselves?

Thanks for assistance on this one.

According to the docs, the max size is 1GB.
