Category and sub-category label lenght in search

Hello,

I've encountered a trouble recently. We have a big category and subcategory tree ( at least 10 levels) with more or less 30 characters by label.

When searching for a subcategory in the deepest levels in the advance search, the result return no files despite the fact that those files are linked to this category.

Is there a sum limit for characters in the subcategories ?  If it's the case, do you know how to increase this limit ?

Thank you sincerely for the informations ! Smiley Happy

There is no length limit on the entire path of the category tree. There is only an effective length limit on the name of an individual category, though I believe it should be sufficient for most use cases (I believe it is 1024 characters).

Thanks for answering.

It's seems that our search by category (including sub category) is failing when we looking at the 10th level of subcategory (returning no document, while there is files with this subcategory).

Only not working when each category/sub-categories have 30 characters. That's really strange.
