Change hook in a smart action returns 413 error

Expected behavior

I expect that when I change value in a field, change hook will be called.

Load hook works properly but chage hook does not.

Actual behavior

Ony change, forest admin tells me to check the error on my server logs
but all I see is the following failure logs:

Hi @Francois_Vongue,

The logline you shared match a 413 HTTP error. (it’s the number just following the route path)
The code means payload too large

You maybe need to increase the maximal size of your requests,? In this case you will find help here
