REST API assignment comment upload by instructor: file size exceeds quota limits

I am trying to submit comments for students for assignments (which include the comments in a file attachment).

The files are text files between 200-500 bytes.


Whenever I try to upload using REST API I get the following error:

file size exceeds quota limits

Clearly the file I am uploading does not exceed the quota but canvas claims that it does. The course has a 1GB of space left in the files section, which should able. 


Is there a limit placed for assignment comment files that is different and how I can I resolve this issue? Students have an active assignment and need to keep receiving these comment attachments.
