APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Unable to save Results database connection parameters in RTCP
    when using a database URL of longer size. Our current Database
    URL is 270 bytes in length and there seems be an issue with RTCP
    using a URL of
    that size. It will eventually save it after a few attempts but
    the overall behavior is not appropriate.
    Max is 255, customer is pushing over 270 characters, will not
    accept the URL.
    

Local fix

  • Work around for now is to shorten the URL, but would like this
    to be fixed in the future.
