Wondering what this error could be in cms:

The db field size is 'nn' bytes to small to save the group permissions. Please enable the configuration setting to dynamicaly grow the field length and try again.

and if it will affect the day to day operation of my Magento store?

It occurs after every product save.

My changes seem to stick and are visible on the front end.



  • do you have any modules for per customer group permissions ? – Yiorgos Moschovitis Oct 25 '17 at 13:22
  • Yes, I was using netzarbeiter groups catalogue to set up customers on the site on 1.7 thru to but the last update to seems to have rendered that invisible. A developer ran the upgrade for me alongside some patches. – Grateful_Jim Oct 25 '17 at 15:11
  • The problem lies with this module. Try disabling it – Yiorgos Moschovitis Oct 25 '17 at 15:48

To enable the setting as described in the warning message for the module Netzarbeiter_GroupsCatalog, go to admin > System > Configuration > CATALOG / Catalog > Customer Groups Catalog > set Grow DB Field Size if required to Yes
