The Process Admin console for IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) throws a "URI Too Large" error when a loading page

Troubleshooting


Problem

In the most common situation, when you do user searches using the Process Inspector for the Process Admin Console, you might see a "URI Too Large" error. However, this error might occur when you load any page.

Cause

The error comes from the web server and it states that the URI request is too long. This results from things like user search strings that cause long URI strings to be generated by the Process Admin console.

Resolving The Problem

You can modify this limit by changing the limitrequestline value in your httpd.config file. For example, if your web server is IBM HTTP Server, see the Apache HHTP Server Version 2.2 documentation for a description of the setting.

Other web servers have similar configuration settings that must be increased to resolve this issue. Check the user documentation for your web server to determine how to increase the URI length limitation.
