Frequently Asked Questions
About Paste The Plan
Q: Are there any restrictions on plans I can upload?
Max upload size is 2MB. Larger plans give browsers fits during upload & rendering.
Q: Where do I report bugs?
There are no bugs, only features we haven’t documented yet. Okay, maybe there’s actually some known bugs:
- On some mobile browsers, lines between plan operators don’t show up
- Plans that don’t pass validation by SQL Server won’t work (we validate it too)
To report additional bugs, contact us and include your browser, operating system, the link where you got the error, and a screenshot.
Q: I lost my URL. Can you look it up for me?
Just paste the plan again, and we’ll give you the same URL again. If you lost the plan, unfortunately, it’s gone with the sands of time. You can’t go home again. Maybe, in the future, we might implement login functionality so you can see the history of all the plans you’ve
loved before pasted.
Q: Can you tell me why my query is slow?
No, but you can take your link and go to our favorite Q&A sites, and other members of the community can help you out.
Q: I’m a developer. Can I access the API directly to push plans to the web?
Not yet, but that’s on our future roadmap. In the meantime, contact us with information about the project you’re working on, and we may be able to help.
