What is the impact of this ERROR: index row size 2784 exceeds maximum 2712 for index "appmap_id_mappings_idx"?
CA APM 10.5.2
Per Engineering, there are chances that may hit the DB performance as we are not able to do indexing on most of external_ids
This issue has been fixed in 10.7 by limiting the external_id to max 2048
Upgrade to CA APM 10.7
