Trying to set the value, but quota values are read-only for this instance.

Trying to set the value to less than zero.


This quota limits the length of strings that are created and returned by various APIs. When calling Read() and checking the Value property, the reader chunks string values into manageable pieces (when in streaming mode). However, calling ReadContentAsString() concatenates all these pieces and return one large string. In the binary format, if the value of an element node is a sequence of dictionary string IDs then the values of those strings are concatenated. This can be an extremely large expansion and is mitigated by this limit.
