Error message appears to be cut off after a certain number of characters if the error happens to be particularly long. This seems to go beyond just the UI, as programmatically I have been unable to find a way to capture very long error messages, despite them being shown in the log. This would be attempting to capture an error message from a step directly, such as when using step.getErrormessage()
(same results when retrieving from a plugin)
Is it possible to capture the full length of an error message without it being truncated?
We need to make sure that the error message has a limited length, as otherwise it will cause trouble when saving in database and may also cause performance issues.
In that case, is there a good way to search through the log of a build after the build is complete, such as through a plugin? I could perhaps set up a regex to look for error messages that match a particular pattern and action on it that way.
With 9.0.41, the error message column has been changed to use the TEXTBLOB column type, and length limit has been changed to 10000 instead of 1000.
10,000 characters sounds great, thanks.
