    We have using squid proxy server for one of our web server. Now we are facing an issue while listing components (source control components) more than 200 in numbers, it is throwing error shown as below.

    Service failed to communicate with repository CRJAZ0098E The following service failed:{/ccm/service/}. The server returned the HT
    TP error 400 with this error text: Bad Request.

    But if we access the same list command using the direct web server link, it listing all the components (totally we have 350 components).

    Is there any specific configuration in squid to increase the limit?

    Please help us to over come this issue. Thanks in advance.
