Confluence REST API, creating a new page with large excel data does not work


I am trying to create a new page with large excel data using REST API i get the following error, but it works for smaller sized excel files

 {message: Response too large. request for this response can be at most 5242880 bytes, statuscode:413)


Tried setting MaxPostSize="-1" in server.xml still gives the same error 



import requests;
import json;
import pandas as pd;
import xlrd;


def read_excel():
return x.to_html();

def new_confluence_page(space_key,title,body):
data = {"type":"page","title":title,"space":{"key":space_key},"body":{"storage":{"value":body,"representation":"storage"}}}
return requests.request('POST',url,auth=('admin','admin'), json=data)

def test_module():
resp=new_confluence_page('TEST1','TEST PAGE HOME-2',table)
