How to Increase Proxy Header Size
I'm testing out my application UI, and I'm routing the request through a proxy in my Virtualize server. The header of my request is over 8 KB (it's around 9 KB), and I've noticed that proxies do not allow their headers to be more than 8 KB.
I tried two things to try and solve this problem I have:
1) I added HTTP listeners to my proxy. I created and placed a 'embeddedServer.properties' with the following property inside it: embedded.connector.maxHttpHeaderSize=9500. I followed instructions from this doc: https://docs.parasoft.com/display/SOAVIRT9107CTP313/HTTP+Configuration#HTTPConfiguration-AdditionalHTTPMessageProxyConfiguration. This did not work.
2) I increased the header size limit or the built-in Tomcat by editing the server.xml in C:\Program Files\Parasoft\SOAtest & Virtualize\9.10\eclipse\plugins\com.parasoft.xtest.libs.web_184.108.40.20661130\root\tomcat\conf. I followed instructions from this doc: https://help.sap.com/doc/saphelpiis_sbo41_sp6_bip_admin_en/4.1/en-US/frameset.htm?46838ea06e041014910aba7db0e91070.html. This worked but it only increased the header size limit for one port (9080).
I'd like to get 1) to work, since I don't want to be constrained to just one port.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
