Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 820079
Cannot view dependent bugs when there are many
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:47:45 EDT
Description of problem:
the RHEL 6.3 Priority List:
If I click on 'Show dependency tree', the total is 1734 bugs. If I click
on 'view bug list' I get, consistently:
"Request-URI Too Large
The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.
Apache Server at bugzilla.redhat.com Port 443"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in.
2. Visit https://bugzilla.redhat.com/showdependencytree.cgi?id=756082&hide_resolved=1
3. Click 'View as bug list'
You receive a HTTP 414 error (request too large)
You should see a list of bugs.
This is a result of the limit that a URL can be. We'll need to look up the HTTP standards to see what that is. I imagine the solution is to turn this into a POST request, but that means the URL is not bookmark.
There may be other options, like doing a search that includes deep dependency fetching.
*** Bug 599180 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
While I have made the change on our test server (see comment #2), I have submitted this bug upstream and hope that they will carry this, or offer an alternative.
Marking as ON_DEV as I'm waiting for upstream to approve my patch. If they approve it for 4.2, then we'll inherit the change that way. If they wait for 4.4, then we'll carry the changes locally.

This change is due to go live at 9pm UTC today (Monday July 9th)
The release date has been changed to 9pm UTC this Thursday (July 12th). Sorry for any inconvenience this late change may cause.
Do not reopen a bug for a previous release, as I will automatically close it again. Please file a new bug. FWIW, the link in comment #11 works for me.
