Gameparameter of type STRING

I can not find an answer in the documents http://docs.deltadna.com/reference/setup/manage-game-parameters/


1. How much data can the string hold?


2. Is it possible to input a JSON string here as a response?



Thanks,

Kristofer

Hi Kristofer, 


The maximum length of String based custom parameters is 512 characters. We strongly advise against embedding JSON within a STRING parameter as it makes the parameter pretty much un-queryable without adding complex string parsing into every analysis query. 


Please create additional parameters for any important fields and populate them rather than trying to embed encoded data within a single parameter.
