I am developing a game where i need to create 52 collections and each collection contains one JSON document. For that i have created Custom service but when i run this service it shows me following error

"{"failure":"true","message":{"app42Fault":{"httpErrorCode":400,"appErrorCode":1903,"message":"Bad Request","details":" Application Exception ","trace":{"app42Fault":{"httpErrorCode":400,"appErrorCode":1400,"details":"The requested JSON doc exceeded the threshold limit.","message":"Bad Request"}}}},"errorCode":400}"

How many maximum number  collections i can create ?

What if i want to create more number of collections ?

What is the limit to create JSON documents in one single collection ?
You can save N number of documents in one collection, there is no limit on the number of documents. However as a part of best practice, the size of a single document should not be increased with 1-2 kb. Please have a look at this link( to understand the data modeling in Storage service and feel free to write us.
