My SOSL query with an extremely long search expression failed with

System.UnexpectedException: Search Term exceeded max length

Searching the Documentation I could not find anything about a max length. Do you know of such and do you know its value?


20,000 characters as of the Summer '13 release.

The SOSL statement character limit is tied to the SOQL statement character limit defined for your organization. By default, SOQL and SOSL queries cannot exceed 20,000 characters.
