Compressed text property

Frequently, on ItemTypes, I use a "Text" property to store json data.

Because, the json is very verbose and can be compressed to reduce the taken space in database and network traffic, I use LZString.compressToBase64 before a setProperty and LZString.decompressFromBase64 after a getProperty.

This could be very developer friendly if ARAS could provide a new type named "compressed" (or whatever you want) doing this transparently.

I don't know how to submit an idea, so I doing it here.
Thank you for considering it.
Regards.

  • Hi Miraks,

    thanks for the tip! In my case we are not storing json data, but transfer them from Aras to another system and vis-versa. I spend a lot time to minimize the amount of transferred data, but never came to the idea of compressing the data.
