Settings for Large Model Deployment Packages (Master Data Services)
Because large model deployment packages can take time to be created or deployed, you may need to change system settings to enable the process to complete successfully.
The system settings you can change are in the Web.config file and in Master Data Services Configuration Manager.
Master Data Services uses a Web.config file to contain the configuration settings that enable Internet Information Services (IIS) to host the Master Data Manager Web application and the Web service. This Web.config file is located in the WebApplication folder of the Master Data Services installation path.
You can change two IIS settings in this file if you have the appropriate permissions. For more information, see Folder and File Permissions (Master Data Services). After you make changes, restart IIS.
Change the maximum file upload size
In the Web.config file, you can change the maximum file upload size supported by ASP.NET for your Master Data Services implementation. To do this, find and update the maxRequestLength attribute of the <httpRuntime> element as shown in the following example.
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="100000" useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" executionTimeout="300"/>
The size specified for maxRequestLength is in kilobytes. The default for Master Data Services is 100 megabytes. You can change this value as needed.
Change the maximum content length
In the Web.config file, you can change the maximum length of content supported by IIS in a request. To do this, find and update the maxAllowedContentLength attribute of the <requestLimits> element as shown in the following example.
<requestFiltering> <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="100000000"/> </requestFiltering>
The length specified for maxAllowedContentLength is in bytes. The default for Master Data Services is 100 megabytes. You can change this value as needed.
There are three settings in Master Data Services Configuration Manager that you can update:
Database time-out, which extends the amount of time before the database times out.
Server time-out, which extends the amount of time before ASP.NET times out.
Web application time-out, which extends the amount of time before the page in Master Data Manager times out.
You can adjust these settings in Master Data Services Configuration Manager or directly in the System Settings table. For more information, see System Settings (Master Data Services).
