TitleAdminApp: Sending a large amount of items for translation causes the server to throw a 414 error
URL Namesending-a-large-amount-of-items-for-translation-causes-the-server-to-throw-a-414-error
Article Number000203554
EnvironmentProduct: Sitefinity
Version: 11.x, 12.x, 13.x
OS: All supported OS versions
Database: All supported Microsoft SQL Server versions
Question/Problem Description

When using the Translations module in the AdminApp - if selecting and marking many pages/content items for translation, Sitefinity attempts to load a dialog path but results in an error.

Steps to ReproduceFor example, upload 10k images in a Library (it will reproduce with less depending on the requested URL limit)
Send the images for translation (any language)
This will reproduce with any content type

As a result, the server will throw "HTTP Error 414. The request URL is too long". When inspecting the generated URL, the IDs of the images are added as a query string. With 10k images, the URL is ~370k characters long.
