Individual browser requestors occupy 2GB Clipboard memory



Individual browser requestors occupy more than 2 GB Clipboard memory.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Reopen the work object where the BLOB size is large. The Clipboard requestor is large.

Root Cause

The issue occurred due to work objects with references to the Orphaned properties. The BLOB consumed the Clipboard memory space.


Apply HFix-61795 (such that Orphaned properties are managed for any new work object).

Perform the below steps to shrink the size of the old work objects:
  1. Obj-Open the work object to a Page (for example, A).
  2. Create a New page with Page-New and name the page as B.
  3. In a Java step, use the below code within double quotes 


    The Step Page should be A for this Step.

    Obj-Save and Commit shrink the size of the inflated work objects.
