Request Header Fields Too Large


I was experimenting with Netlify Identity and using user_metadata to story some key value pairs. Recently, started getting some 431 errors saying that “Request Header Fields Too Large”.

Digged a bit into GoTrue API and came across this code:

So couple of questions:

  • Is there a possibility to generate access token without user_metadata?
  • Is there a way to increase header size limit?

Thank you,

Hey there, @tterian :wave:

Thanks so much for reaching out! My apologies for the delay here.

Can you let us know if you still are working through these questions, or if you found the information you needed? If you are still looking for support and answers I will loop in a Support Engineer :slight_smile:

Hey Hillary, thank you for following up.

I ended up moving out from Netlify Identity to another service with more flexibility and control.
So the question is not relevant any more.

Thank you,
