Error during serialization or deserialization using the JSON JavaScriptSerializer. The length of the string exceeds the value set on the maxJsonLength property.

by Xavier Dilip Kumar 2. July 2013 20:12

Explanation:

  • The Work item with large amount of data in the custom HTML fields fails to open after migration.
  • The error may occur for the build logs with large amount of data as well.

Workaround:

Try to modify web.config in \Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 11.0\Application Tier\Web Services to adjust the size.
The default length is 20MB, so try a larger value than that. The value below is for 50MB. Experimentation may be necessary to find the best value.

<appSettings>
<add key="maxJsonLength" value="52428800" />
</appSettings>

Value is specified in byte
