Panel Limit

To display the request in the Outline panel, ReadyAPI has to analyze it and display the contents. For complex requests, this may take an extended period of time, so ReadyAPI displays a warning instead. You can dismiss this warning and continue, but creating a form may take long or cause ReadyAPI to crash.

The warning appears if there are over 2000 items in the service definition, or if the XML definition is over the maximum value specified in ReadyAPI options.
