An element name is a sequence of characters [Aa-Zz], numbers, and/or the character "_"; spaces are not allowed. The name of the element must start with a character [Aa-Zz]. Any character that is not allowed, for example "space" or "ç", is automatically translated, by Integration Studio, to "_".
The maximum number of characters allowed depends on the element you are handling:
Entity attribute name: 28 characters.
If you are using an Oracle database, there are some reserved words that cannot be used as attribute names: timestamp, number, blob, clob and varchar2. Integration Studio presents a warning message notifying you that the attribute name must be changed.
Any other element: 50 characters.
If the name is bigger than the maximum allowed, Integration Studio presents an error message and you must follow these limits in order to proceed.
