Request Entity too large


Hello the magic Forum,

What does this error info means from the log:-- An exception occured while indexing (Batch): The remote server returned an error: (413) Request Entity Too Large.

Best regards,

Does it say what class/method throws this error? Sounds like the search engine is trying to index something big?

Using Find or Episerver standard search service?

Hi Daniel,

Using Find.

when the schedule job runs, it sends content in batches, and a batch cannot be larger than 50MB. I use the following code in the EPIServerFindInitialization. 

ContentIndexer.Instance.ContentBatchSize = 8;
ContentIndexer.Instance.MediaBatchSize = 2;
ContentIndexer.Instance.MaxTries = 5;
ContentIndexer.Instance.MinBatchSize = 1;

But I still get the same error message. How I wonder?!

Now I know: the dev indices have a lower limit of 5 MB.
