The BI Publisher product documentation 'Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher' states the default value for 'Maximum Report Data Size' is 300MB per below:

Table F-1 Memory Guard Properties and Descriptions

Property Maximum report data size for online reports
Description Default value: 300MB
        Sets the maximum allowed online report data size. You can set the value in GB, MB, or KB. For example: 1GB, 200MB, or 1500KB

However users receive the error "Report data size exceeds the maximum limit (20971520 bytes)" in bipublisher.log for large reports, as value 'Maximum Report Data Size' is NULL in the BI Publisher properties:
