1807057 - Is it Possible to Extend the Length of Org Unit Name More Than 40 Characters?

Symptom

When you create a Org Unit, the length of the Org Unit Name is restricted to 40 characters only. So, you would like to know, whether it is possible to extend more than 40 characters?

Resolution

The restriction of Org Unit Name to 40 characters is the standard behavior of Business ByDesign system. The reason for this behavior is that this is name which is being used in other business areas (where the name there is restricted to 40 characters) based on the definitions of the Org unit.

For Example: when you make the Org Unit as Company, that will create a Account or Supplier where the Name field is restricted to 40 characters. similarly for other assignments.

Hence, it is not possible to extend the length of the Org Unit name to more than 40 characters.
