Favorite URL cannot exceed 256 characters?

I am in the process of creating a LOC chart in Fisheye and try to limit the scope by filtering on specific filetypes. As a result the file types to include are appended to the URL and the total characters are quickly exceeding the 256 characters. As a result the error below is displayed when trying to save the graph as a favorite. The graph itself is rendered and can be displayed, it is simply not possible to add it to the favorites list.

Is there another way to easily pull LOC metrics from the various trunk directories for only specific file types? Perhaps using an API call? The entire process should be repeatable without to much effort.

Example URL:,charttype=Pie,stacktype=Subdirectory,extn=__NO_EXTENSION__,extn=.MSI,extn=.Sql,extn=.Uml,extn=.bat,extn=.cab,extn=.config,extn=.cpp,extn=.cs,extn=.csproj,extn=.datasource,extn=.def,extn=.dsp,extn=.dsw,extn=.filters,extn=.h,extn=.ico,extn=.idl,extn=.lib,extn=.log,extn=.manifest,extn=.odl,extn=.pdb,extn=.pl,extn=.properties,extn=.rc,extn=.rc2,extn=.reg,extn=.resx,extn=.rgs,extn=.settings,extn=.sln,extn=.sql,extn=.svcinfo,extn=.svcmap,extn=.txt,extn=.user,extn=.vcproj,extn=.vcxproj,extn=.vdproj,extn=.wsdl,extn=.xaml,extn=.xml,extn=.xsd/SVNLOCATION?PATH

The value '~br=trunk,charttype=Pie,stacktype=Subdirectory,extn=__NO_EXTENSION__,extn=.MSI,extn=.Sql,extn=.Uml,extn=.bat,extn=.cab,extn=.config,extn=.cpp,extn=.cs,extn=.csproj,extn=.datasource,extn=.def,extn=.dsp,extn=.dsw,extn=.filters,extn=.h,extn=.ico,extn=.idl,extn=.lib,extn=.log,extn=.manifest,extn=.odl,extn=.pdb,extn=.pl,extn=.properties,extn=.rc,extn=.rc2,extn=.reg,extn=.resx,extn=.rgs,extn=.settings,extn=.sln,extn=.sql,extn=.svcinfo,extn=.svcmap,extn=.txt,extn=.user,extn=.vcproj,extn=.vcxproj,extn=.vdproj,extn=.wsdl,extn=.xaml,extn=.xml,extn=.xsd' for the property 'stringKey3' is too long. It should have a maximum length of 255

Hi Lucas,

Unfortunately this is a browser limitation.

The only workaround I can imagine for it is to use an url shortener to use this filters directly.
