How to Adjust the Maximum Number of Results Returned by the Cablecast Web Service

Applies to

  • Cablecast (All Versions)

Symptoms

  • The Cablecast Web Service only returns 50 results for Show searches

Cause

In order to prevent some Web Service queries from using excessive system resources, the maximum number of results is intentionally limited.

Resolution

You can modify the setting that determines the  maximum number of results using the following procedure:

  1. From the Windows desktop of the server hosting the Cablecast Web Service:
  2. Navigate to either C:\TRMS\Web\CablecastWS\ or D:\TRMS\Web\CablecastWS (on older machines this folder will be on the D: drive)
  3. Open web.config using Notepad or a similar text editor
    * Make sure you're editing web.config not web.config.latest
  4. Under the <appSettings> section look for a setting called "ShowResultLimitPerSite"
  5. Change the number to your desired value.  Note that the default value is 50. 
  6. Save the file

Example:

To set the limit at 100 shows the line would read:

<add key="ShowResultLimitPerSite" value="100" />

Please note that setting this value too high will cause the Web Service to use more system resources.  This might cause undesired side effects.
