2281679 - Item Connector Fatal Error -LMS


  • When trying to associate content module/object with item through a connector, if the 'APP_DESCRIPTION' field is left blank, the item connector will pick up the description from 'CPNT_DESC'.
  • When the 'CPNT_DESC' is more than 2000 chars, the item connector throws a fatal error and does not process the file.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Prepare  a feed file for item connector with CPNT_DESC greater than 2000 characters;
  2. Prepare content_module_data feed file with APP_DESCRIPTION field blank;
  3. Run the item connector to process these files.


APP_DESCRIPTION supports only 2000 chars and CPNT_DESC supports 4000 bytes.


CPNT_DESC should be less than or equal to 2000 chars.
