Problem:

When I build a dashboard with more than six reports, it does not save. Limited to 6 works fine, but I can't save more than that.

I'm using Logaholic on a IIS 7 server.

 

Solution:

Go to the IIS manager and find Request Filtering, find the Feature Options and increase the value for maxQueryString to 3 times it's size.

That should fix the problem.

You can find more information here:

If the same thing happens on apache, please change this setting:

I've also had to increase the "Maximum Query String (bytes) value in the same location. I increased this value from 2048 to 10000.
