Issue: Expected File path length exceeds the maximum permissible limit
Max length for file path is not a static value. It varies from situation to situation. If batch instance is submitted as a file max path length will be different and when batch instance is submitted as folder it will be different. Max length of file path depends upon both the base path as well as file name. Hence there is not hard-coded maximum limit for file path.
Maximum permissible limit is calculated at runtime with help of an algorithm which ensure that the input file can be processed in the workflow without any issue. In any scenario maximum permissible file path length can be found in INFO level logs. Before throwing a batch instance into error due to file path length issue, it logs the maximum allowed file path length in INFO level logs.
