I'm running PB 2019 R3 Build 2703.  I'm using RESTClient object to call SendGetRequest().  If the URL I'm passing exceeds 1325 characters in length, then  SendGetRequest() returns -2.  This equates to Invalid URL.  I've tested the URL outside of PB with Postman and the response is valid so this appears to be an issue/limit with PB.

I tested using HTTPClient object as well, but it acts in the same manner as RESTClient object.  i.e. get request fails when URL exceeds 1325.

Can you confirm, is 1325 the max length allowed for a URL with RESTClient and HTTPClient objects?  If yes, then are there any work-arounds?  Is the URL max length increased in newer, or future, PB versions?

Thank you Mark for the update.

Are there any plans for this fix to also be included in a future MR of PB 2019 R3? If yes, do you have an ETA?

Hi Greg,



About this, we plan to fix it in the subsequent MR version of PB 2019 R3. But the release date is not fixed yet.

Thank you for the response Mark.  Can you confirm the version the fix will be in?  I'm currently running 2019 R3.  Will there be a fix for this version, version 2021 or version 2022?

Hi Greg,



If everything goes well, the fix should be available in the next PB 2019 R3 version, 2021, and 2022.

But the release dates of these versions are not settled yet.

Hi Greg,

 

Yes. This is a bug and it will be fixed in the next PB version. Sorry that there’s no other workaround at this moment.

With the fix in the next PB version, the max length allowed for this URL will be the same as that supported by the Firefox browser, which is no longer than 65k (the URL length in Chrome is limited to 8k).

 

Regards,
