I got this error when I use search result webpart with the custom Search Result Source created at Search Service application level.
Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.Pipeline.Connectors.OpenSearchReaderConnector : Response length exceeded maximum length
When I query search service database with the query like this
Select * from MSSSources
From the query result I saw that for all the pre-defined SP search result source the MaximumResponseLength is always 2147483647 but for all the custom result source I create no matter what protocol it's Local SharePoint Sites, Open Search, Exchange the field MaximumResponseLength is always 64 (KB I guess) and there's no field on the UI let me change this value.
Could this be a problem to my error above? I guess I can change the value for field MaximumResponseLength using PowerShell or db script and see if it works, but I'd like to ask if anyone had the same experiences with it and any side affects when changing this value?
