    ****************************************************************
    When a user is navigating the database hierarchy in DOORS
    Web Access and expands a folder then the client needs to
    parse the module level attributes in order to update the UI.
    
    In a certain cases the shape and size of data could cause
    timeouts to occur in the UX.
    

Problem conclusion

  • If a module's type system contains a module level attribute
    with a large amount of data (such as 1mb of text) then will
    take time to process.
    
    When a folder is being expanded - and that folder contains
    many of these modules at the same level - then the time
    taken to process the information required to render the
    folder contents may exceed the display timeout.
    
    The documentation will be updated to reflect this limitation
    and to recommened that customers do not use module level
    attributes to store large amounts of data.
