Maximum data for calling web service

Hi all,

I try to trigger a C# webservice via XI.

If I transfer more than 65000 bytes then I get a "Bad request error".

When I transfer less than 65000 bytes everything works fine.

Is that a configuration in XI or a limit in the service itself?

Any ideas?

regards

    Hi,

    In theory there is no limitation on data can be called using webservice but as you know webservice use HTTP for transferring data hence it is limitation of HTTP regarding un-interrupt transfer of data.

    This limit of http can be vary from landscape to landscape, over LAN you may get 64MB but over internet you may get similar error for few MBs or less.

    Suggestion is to breakup data into smaller part for reliable transfer of information otherwise you will see this error often.

    Webservices are not recommended for high volume data transfer.

    Regards,

    There are some options in the C# webservice web.config file to specify the maximum data which should be transfered.
