    How to increase the request header size for ORDS in standalone

    user9172677

      We are running ORDS in standalone mode (with self signed certificate for HTTPS), but the requests are coming from a sign-on service which injects some big cookies in the request header.

      Thus in ORDS we are getting "Header is too large 8193>8192" and error 431 from Jetty.

      There are solutions described for different Jetty configurations that involve standalone/etc/jetty-http.xml file and various contents in it.

      Looking at the Jetty docs, we tried with the following in this file:

      <Configure id="httpConfig" class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.HttpConfiguration">

         <Set name="requestHeaderSize">32768</Set>

      </Configure>

      Thus, trying to increase the value 4 times above the default for Jetty - 8kb. But that does not impact ORDS/Jetty behavior.

      Actually we have tried solution for NCSA style logging and it works. Now we need to incorporate also a setting for increased header size.
