Karthik Krishnan (8825118163) | asked Jul 11 '14, 1:17 a.m.
What are the maximum number of comment (Discussion) entries can a Work item have? like 1000 or so?

Are there in restrictions?

I don't think there is such limit.
The only case I have been facing such requirement was a work item that was automatically being updated upon build completion.
After each build, a comment was added.
This resulted in a very large (in terms of payload) work item.

Thanks Eric

Reason for my question is that in ClearQuest (With Oracle 11), if the contents of the multiline string are large the "edit entity" results in timeout error

Since we are moving out of CQ to RTC, want to ensure if RTC could handle large entries. Also will we see any slow down in performance if the RTC entries are too big (ex: 200's of comment entries) ?

talking about the number of separate comment, we've been working with work items having 200+ comments - no problem.
In terms of the comment's size - it's limited to 32k chars

I think both system are not comparable at this level.
Each comment in RTC should be one record in the database.
Editing multiline fields in CQ would be comparable to add text to a description of an wortkitem.

In which cases do you have those experiences with CQ?
How large are thiose entries?
