Hi need a help. I'm sending response body from a file using bodyFileName. When I do so, I get '*payload removed due to size*' with 200 response at the client side. I tried few options like setting header size and --use-chunked-encoding but still the same. So reduced the json body file size and now I got the response with body. Any idea if there is body size limit?. The same is working with direct API call.

It's wiremock standalone which was having initial size of body was 45KB , after reducing it to 3.8KB. it worked. At standalone side I do not see any error message but at the client end it was failing during auto testing. When reduced the size it worked. { "id" : "03bb1808-b4b3-4433-b522-b8639d22d15c", "name" : "display-users-details", "request" : { "url" : "/services/users/details", "method" : "GET" }, "response" : { "status" : 200, "bodyFileName" : "usersdetails.json", "headers" : { "Content-Type" : "application/json;charset=utf-8", "Date" : "Fri, 05 May 2023 132158 GMT" } }, "uuid" : "03bb1808-b4b3-4433-b522-b8639d22d15c" }
I was getting "body: { message: 'payload removed due to size', length: 45226 }" at the client side and wrongly miss read the error is due to file size though it's not an error. but fortunately or unfortunately when I reduced the size of the json file. My client started working.
So I'm curious if there is any limit set on the size of response body sent by wiremock.

Most likely yes. I suspect it's a limit on the jetty side but I still need to confirm it
So far I cannot find the repository from where "payload removed due to size" comes from so I am a bit puzzled and need a debugger
Could it be the truncation on the receiver side or maybe on the intelligent proxy side? It would be nice to check what actually WireMock responds on its end

please ignore "payload removed due to size" as said it's at the client side. I initially thought its a error but the client have configured to remove body at the logging end. I mis read it as error but luckily it helped in identifying the issue.
