RQM Categories: How large can the list be?

Alexander Dawson (2542328) | asked Oct 28 '13, 12:27 p.m.
I'm looking to build out the Categories in our RQM Instance,

We'll have a Category with a child subcategory.

There are

120 parent category entries
1200 child category entries
1400 parent-child combo's   (obviously not much reuse of entries in the child list)

Has this been proven out?  What's the largest Category Type RQM can support?

Thanks in advance
Alexander Dawson

Hi Alexander,

In RQM, there is a 50 category limit.

Is that limit the highest supported amount?  Or does it cut off and refuse additional entries?

Paul Slauenwhite commented Oct 29 '13, 9:17 a.m.

RQM will not permit creating more than 50 categories (displays an error message).

Alexander Dawson commented Oct 29 '13, 9:31 a.m.

In the GUI they refer to these as Category Values, I've already gone through 50 on some of these.   

So my question is...for example, if I create a Category of Ice Cream Flavors, how many flavors we have?
--  .......  ?

I've never seen an error message (in 4.0.1).

Paul Slauenwhite commented Oct 29 '13, 11:09 a.m.

The limitation is on the number of category types (e.g. Flavor).  You can have an unlimited number of category values.

Note, archived/deleted category types count toward this limit.  For example, if you have 30 active category types and 20 archived category types, the limit is reached.
