Issue/Introduction

We are looking to delete multiple devices from CAPM. We are using the REST API but we are getting 413 errors: Request entity is larger than limits defined by server. We are looking for either a way to configure the server to allow the reset command: http://:8581/rest/devices to complete.

Environment

Release:
Component: IMADMN

Resolution

The limit can be increased by using the following procedure. 

1. Create a file named com.ca.im.item.ws.impl.AutomaticWebServiceManagerImpl.cfg in the DA's INSTALL_ROOT/apache-karaf-XXX/etc/ directory. 
2. Add the following line to that file: 
maxReturnItemCount=500001

3. The exact number that you put in should mimic the approximate count seen in the DA karaf.log, with the caveat that setting this to a high number can result in OutOfMemory errors.
