Description Simon Green 2012-05-09 01:51:06 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):

How reproducible:

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'
Actual results:
You receive a HTTP 414 error (request too large)

Expected results:
You should see a list of bugs.

Additional info:
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.

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.

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.
