Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Cloud Application Studio 
  2. Click View > Dump Analysis 
  3. In Dump Analysis tool > Select All Filter 
  4. Dump occurs and the Cloud Application Studio crashes 


The partner has written a line of code which is spread across many columns (+300) and will cause some functions to behave ambiguously. In other words the length of a line of code has exceeded 255 characters and this causes the Dump Analysis Tool to crash.

The Cloud Application Studio Dump Analysis Tool picks up the Dumps from the back end and converts them into the format required by the Dump Analysis Tool. The Data Type used by the tool does not support a column number of 255 or greater. This will result in an overflow dump and a 500 internal error in the Cloud Application Studio.


To avoid this dump from occurring, the partner responsible must split the code logic into multiple lines. Once the line of code does not exceed 255 characters, the Dump Analysis Tool should work as expected.
