Oops! You passed too much data - Dehydratation

User of our app got error “Oops! You passed too much data (6725 bytes) to your dehydration function - try slimming it down under 6000 bytes (usually by just passing the needed Ids.”

I didn't find any information about limitation in documentation. Can you give as a hint?

Thank you.

Best regards,

Hi @MarekH 

Good question.

This Zapier Platform help article might provide guidance:

Hi @Troy Tessalone,

I did not find any information about 6000 bytes dehydration limit and how to handle that problem.

I am using the cli

I also looked to the example how to work with files: but it seems like it is not handling this problem.

Hi @MarekH,

It looks like your app is hitting a limit on the maximum amount of data that can be passed via the inputData parameter on the z.dehydrateFile() method:

Hi @MarekH 👋

We’ve responded in the support ticket for this issue on your public integration 👍

The CLI platform allows for a hydration payload of up to 6KB to z.dehydrate / z.dehydrateFile. This is noted in the changelog here:  but I certainly agree that it would be valuable to include in the CLI documentation on hydration, which we will address, thank you!
