Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create extension field in system.
  2. Add that field in any of the data source/report.
  3. Now open that data source/report from Business Analytics work center.
  4. Add that field in data source/report view and you will notice that whole text is not displayed. Text is getting truncated.


At report/data source level, we support up to 80 characters for characteristic names and 60 characters for key figure names.


This is working as expected.
