2552658 - Field length in Cloud Data Sources


You created a field with data type char in a Cloud Data Source. When you created the field you selected the length to be longer than 60 characters.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to Design Data Sources view.
  3. Click on New > Cloud Data Source.
  4. Enter the mandatory details for your new Cloud Data Source.
  5. Click on Add Row to create data source fields.
  6. Type in Field ID, Name, Length, etc. and select Data Type = Char.
  7. When you enter a length > than 60 you will receive the message 'Field length incorrect; enter a number number between 1-60'.


This is the expected system behaviour and works as designed.


We are evaluating the use case and if required this will be changed in future releases.
