#1274 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Prevent users working with long ways

Reported by: Richard Owned by: richard@…
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: potlatch (flash editor) Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Long ways are generally a really bad thing - if there's a lot of data (like, 17,000 nodes) the server/connection/Flash Player will probably time out somewhere along the line, resulting in inconsistent data. That's to say nothing of the UI unresponsiveness and the issues that could potentially cause.

Potlatch should definitely not allow users to create them - there's an argument to say it shouldn't even load them, too (amf_controller could refuse to send back anything over 1,000 nodes, for example).

Worth bearing in mind that there is now a limit on the length of ways, defined in the application.yml. Currently set to 2000 nodes. So it would be good to align any restrictions in Potlatch with that number.
