Make max http header size configurable

    Details

    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 11.x, 2021.7
    • Component/s: Web Common

      Description

      The current max size for all the http headers is 8192 bytes which is too small to handle some redirects with very long urls (ex: a very long oauth token)

      At the moment the only solution is to override the whole server.xml file with a configuration template in order to set the value of the maxHttpHeaderSize attribute.

      <Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="65536" protocol="HTTP/1.1" ... />
