Request URI Too Large When Linking DataObjects To Page

I have a dataobject that I'm trying to link to a page, but it fails on certain pages that have a lot of content and custom fields with error 414 Request URI Too Large.

I can add new dataobjects but it's when I want to link an existing one to a page that the search fails.

When I look through Chrome's console, I see the request URL takes all the content/fields and puts in the url:

domain.com/admin/pages/edit/EditForm/field/DataObject/search?everyfieldwithcontenthere

So for small pages it works fine because the URL stays small, but if you have a content heavy page, this fails.

Is this a known bug or is there a work around?

So all the fields have their content entered into the URL? That seems like a bug to me, especially if there's a 414 error.

Which component are you using to search getting the failing request?

I did a search and it happens to this person too http://www.silverstripe.org/general-questions/show/20622#post316051

I'm using gridfield with a many_many relationship.

Here is the screenshot of console

This happens when I try searching existing dataobjects to link to the page.

I am using a multilingual module, so you'll see translation fields there, but it happens with regular dataobjects too, so it's not that module.

Should I open a ticket for this? I don't know enough about the framework but it seems like this is done on purpose, but fails if you have large content. I'm not the only one getting this.

Hi mate, did you found a solution for this issue?

No, I just left it out for the time being as the site I was working on didn't absolutely need it. I was just waiting for a fix.
