10000 character limit?

Jump to solution

We are building a large workflow in Nintex SPOnline.  We have made a bunch of changes and now when we attempt to save and/or publish, we are receiving an error:

 

Error publishing workflow. The length of property is limited to 10000 characters

 

 

Anyone know what property may be limited to 10k chars?  we have actually decreased the number of actions in the WF - we have increased the number of variables used.

 

It definitely seems to be related to a large amount of variables (~50).  We have been able to save by eliminating some variables from the workflow.

 

Is there a work around for this?  would it help to offload some actions and variables into UDAs?

Bill,

While it may seem really great to have that much going on with a workflow, are you sure you need that much login embedded within one single process point for SharePoint?  Basically, can you split that into sub workflows and use a workflow to kick them off to keep your processes intact?

 

There aren't hard limits on a lot of things with workflows, but the various combinations of actions and variables can cause issues fast.  I would suggest simplifying the workflow by splitting it out first and then going from there.

We had the same issue on a workflow which isn't that complex, actually, but had a lot of unused variables. We also fixed this by deleting (unused) variables.

We split the workflow up into smaller pieces and the issue resolved.  thanks for that advice.
