Re: How to increase Text Area/Text Field Length

These fields are limited by the size of the columns in the respective tables. At least for request/request headers you can have up to 4000 characters, if you set them to store in the columns parameter41 to parameter50.

Re: How to increase Text Area/Text Field Length

Hi, I am facing the same issue. When I try creating a custom "Text Area" validation with a max length greater than 200, PPM throws an error saying max length exceeded. I've come up with a workaround for this i.e. by running a backend update on knta_validations table. I'm updating the MAX_LENGTH column with the desired number and it seems to work for me. However, speaking to HP support, they don't recommend this workaround.
