Hi!

Is there a way to increase character limit for URL's in ASP.net 3.5 or Moss 2007?
ASP.net 4.0 has maxRequestPathLength, is there an equivalent maxRequestPathLength in ASP.net 3.5?

Please advice.

Regards,

Joseph

You can set maximum request length in web.config

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="32768" />
    </system.web>
</configuration>

You cannot do this,
maxRequestLength
is different thing.

PatelAlpesh,

Can you explain why?

You cannot increase the character limit in MOSS . this is not just a url but has too lots of other things attached to it for example relation to other item libraries and lists and then you also have limitation when it comes to work flows . They don’t like long urls . i think .
save this information in the data base is also something that need to consider when setting up a url .
