Storyline 360: Is there a way to limit the amount of data saved in cmi.suspend_data?
Apr 04, 2020
Good morning everyone, we are publishing our lessons to an LMS in scorm 1.2 compliance.
According to the scorm 1.2 spec, the string length for cmi.suspend_data is about 4096 bytes.
Yet we are publishing courses that (right now) have around 80 slides and 20 exam questions... And our cmi.suspend_data is hitting about 7199 bytes in size.
I am worried that when we have a longer course (120 slides for example) the suspend data will reach in size over 7999 bytes, which is the max limit in our database.
It appears to be archiving either every screen, or every interaction. Possibly both, and we want to try to limit the amount of data that Articulate Storyline 360 generates and tries to save in cmi.suspend_data. Both for SCORM specification, and for our database and indexing purposes.
Does anyone have any advice on this?
