I was trying to create a new DST:

    At what point in the creation process are you getting the error? Is it when you first hit the Create New button, or is it when you actually try to save the created sheet?

    I was finally able to create the sheet when I removed all of the css and js.

    However when trying to save an update I still get the 500 . I've narrowed
    it down to js. I have some rather large json data. Is there a limit to
    amount of js that can be added through the Web form? I've validated the
    code and of course it runs fine on the dev kit locally, just trying to
    figure the issue.

    If I omit the json objects the save button works.

    I am not aware of a direct limit, but I can confirm with tech on that. I am wondering if there might be something in the json code specifically that is blocked (like a particular string).

    Would you be opposed to me reaching out to you directly via email on this, should make it easier for us to share the code so I can see what is up?

    I'm not opposed to it at all :)

    I can also send you the full js for the DST as well.

    I did some additional tests. It looks like the js upload is only allowing
    64kb of js code. I tested by copying and pasting the same function over
    and over. The update of the DST works fine at 64kb as soon as it goes to
    65 kb I get a 500 error.

    Hey there, sorry I have been quiet the past couple of days but I sadly got sick and was out of commission. Now that I am back I can touch base on this with both tech and our DST guru. I will pop you an email as well so you can kick me over the code.

    I believe we cleared this up via email. There is indeed a data limit on these fields, but it's sensibly large in general.

    BlueEyedFireDragon, were you able to get everything sorted?

    Thanks for the reply. I still hit the field size limit, because of that I
    decided to abandon that project and move in another direction.

    Would you mind sending me the JS you were using? I'm curious what you were doing that ended up being so much data, and might be able to help you get back on track with this.

    Hit me up via PM if you wouldn't mind sharing.
