Number of items exceeds the maximum allowed

edited March 21, 2016 in Documentum


I'm getting this error in Taskspace :Number of Items exceeds the maximum allowed.

I have a dropdown that I populate using an adaptor, when its populated I get the error below.

What am I doing wrong, what do I need to fix to make this work.

    There must be a limit to the number of items in a drop down and so you would need to add a dql hint (return top) to the query (if it's a custom adaptor) or add an additional filter to restrict the number of results returned.

    Hi Nick,

    I just tried that but I'm still getting the same error message.

    Here's my edited adaptor's dql

    It must be something in the configuration of the dropdown widget or the SDT where the data is being saved, that is set to only allow one value.  Can you compare the configuration with the Place of Exam for example?

    I removed the adaptor from Special(execute when input changes) and only left with the one in Data & Storage.

    Now it's working fine.

    Thanks for your assistance
