As per new release B1811 

Reference: PLA-5664

Previously, the field max-length defined in your data model might exceed the maximum length allowed in the SuccessFactors database, but the data model can still be imported successfully, which makes your field max-length ineffective. Now, it is possible for you to validate your max-length definition of string fields when importing the data model. If it exceeds the maximum length, the import is blocked and error messages are provided to help you better manage the max-length definition.


*********** Requires Provisioning Access****************

Validate the data model with max-length definition of string fields and correct it then follow the below steps:

Go to Provisioning --> Click on Import/export Data model --> Import the corrected xml file
