I really love to have the mermaid functionality included in the gitlab markdown. For further information please see https://gitlab.com/help/user/markdown#mermaid
However, on our self hosted instance using Version 12.8.1 (d18b43a5f5a) we run into a maximum character count error for larger mermaid graphs. The graphs become large since I link the nodes to issues or pages using the
click <node_name> “URL”
syntax - which I think is a very powerful tool since issues or external sites can be linked to the graphs node thus giving a very convenient way of navigating through larger projects.
The error I get is
Cannot render the image. Maximum character count (5000) has been exceeded.
We tried changing the number in the code as suggested in https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-foss/issues/58603 but it did not show any effect.
I would wish this will become a config option in the future.
Anyone knows any workarounds or fixes?
