Database recommendations

Available with Workflow Manager license.

To reduce the chance of reaching database-specific limits while using ArcGIS Workflow Manager (Classic), it is recommended that the following settings in the SERVER_CONFIG table in your database be changed.

  • MAXBLOBSIZE—This value should be increased to accommodate larger files being stored within the database. This is applicable to any attachments and MXDs that you will be using in Workflow Manager (Classic). The default SDE value for this is 1 MB, which is typically exceeded when using the application. For example, you can increase the default value to 100 MB.
  • MAXBUFSIZE—This value should be increased so that data transfer can be carried out without error. For example, you can increase this to 128 KB.
