To increase space export limit

In BWL we have an option to export the space in the single excel file, but the current limit set is up to 3000 artefacts. We understand that this limit has been set post testing to ensure that running such reports would not impact the system performance. Looking at our current space structure & its contents, we feel that the limit of 3000 artifacts is too low. If we had to get the report for any particular space, we had to run the report in splits and finally consolidate which is time consuming. It would be great if the total number of artefacts limit can be doubled with the current limit while exporting space in the single excel file.

    Hi IBM, i submitted my comment and requested IBM to consider enhancing the space export limitation. Could you please provide further comment and whether IBM has any plan to enhance the limitation? This has caused some difficulty in our reporting and analysis of our data in Blueworks. Thank you in advance.

    The current limit of 3000 artifacts in the single excel file is not sufficient to our current workspace structure & processes. It is just too low as the limits is a combination of sub-workspaces and blueprints in a main workspace. It is difficult for us to analyse data in multiple files. It will take time to consolidate the files into a single file. Please increase the artifacts limit in the excel export feature. Thank you.

    private Thanks for your request!

    RBS had another RFE open for this same request. See RFE 119866 ( We'd sent a question back to the owner of that RFE asking if it was still required. We cancelled it when we didn't get a reply.

    Going by this new RFE, clearly you've determined that you still need it! We accept the RFE, but will note that this remains low priority for us.
    We must first do performance and scalability testing to determine if we can safely do this, as well to determine what would be a safe limit. We will update this RFE when we have more information. Thanks!
