Resolving "is too large to show a diff"


Crucible / Fisheye 4.6.0

After adding my repository and creating a review, I encountered the "is too large to show a diff" message on a couple of files. I followed the instructions to increase the maximum file size and perform a full re-index of the repository, yet the issue remains.

A quick Google search yielded me a question and a bug (from 2015) corresponding to this problem. However, there was no solution in either for them. 

I'd hope this issue has been addressed in the last 3 years. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks in advance.


In addition to the instructions, I've tried the following with no success:

  • Forcing a re-index by manually deleting Fisheye's cache of the repository and restarting Fisheye.
  • Removing the problem files from all reviews, executing a re-index, and adding the files back.
  • Deleting and recreating the repository.
