Pivotal Greenplum Database (GPDB)
The stored procedures/Functions are limited to 100 parameters and server parameter max_function_args control this and is read-only which also means that it cannot be modified.
If you try to use more than 100 arguments in the function, then you would be encountering the error message
ERROR: functions cannot have more than 100 arguments
This is a known limitation and it's very difficult to change since the limitation is baked very deeply into the existing catalog structure.
Some options/workarounds available to overcome this is:
- Use arrays rather than individual arguments
- Use record data-types to the functions rather than individual arguments
