I'm trying to create a list item through REST api, but the multitext field contains content larger than 1mb and I'm getting this error:

"The maximum number of bytes allowed to be read from the stream has been exceeded. After the last read operation, a total of 1049600 bytes has been read from the stream; however a maximum of 1048576 bytes is allowed."

Any way to address / bypass this in O365

Reduce the batch size, like I was using 1000 records to insert in batch, I reduced it to 200 threshold and it is working, got 200 by hit and trial.
