Configure maxPostSize for Tomcat - Version 2020 (10.0) - Hexagon

Smart Materials Web Installation (10.1)

Smart Materials/Smart Reference Data Version

With the maxPostSize attribute you define the maximum size in bytes of data requests that can be passed to a server in a single http call.

If the application workspace is exceeding during a transaction in a grid, you will see error message 'ERR-7620 Could not determine workspace for application ()'.

  1. Locate your Tomcat’s server configuration file at


  2. Set appropriate maxPostSize attribute.

    For example, to limit the data requests to 100MB (100*1024*1024):

    <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" maxPostSize="104857600" redirectPort="8443" />

    Alternatively, to disable this limit, which means the server will accept requests no matter how big, set maxPostSize to -1:

    <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" maxPostSize="-1" redirectPort="8443" />

    If not specified maxPostSize will be defaulted to 2MB.
