Table Size | Limits and Workarounds

We've ported some existing data over to PlaySQL and have run into an issue regarding the number of entries we can handle when editing a table. I would prefer not to extend the timeout and am familiar with issue PLAYSQL-19 as a future solution.

Displaying the table within a page isn't an issue as I can emulate a paginated table via a query using offset, limit, and a user param. I'm looking for a way for uses to add entries into the table, without the expense of loading the entire table.

Hi John,

As I understand, your problem isn't much about the table size but rather about adding one record. Would you be happy for a "Form" which allows you to enter a record? Instead of displaying the record as a row, we could display them vertically, with name/value pairs like in a normal form. If you would be happy with that, let's communicate in private and in about two weeks I can send you a prototype, which I would make public later on.



Hey Adrien,

This is the exact solution I was hoping for. I would also be interested in any ideas you have for editing records as well.



Editing records could be slightly more complex since you have to define which record is edited: Should it be the current user's record? Should we let them browse records?

Creating records is a first step that can surely be done. You can watch PLAYSQL-44 if you want to, otherwise I'll notify you on Answers.

I'll have to get with some other members of the team to decide on what we really need for editing. I think we'll have some information regarding the specific record we will need to edit, but I can't confirm that yet.

I'll watch PLAYSQL-44 once my account is available over there.

Alright, I'll work on that and I'll contact you when I have the first versions.

Hi John,

There's no way to send a private message on Atlassian Answers. Would you mind contacting me at

Thank you!
