Increasing the entity/entity attribute name length

Hi All, 

Understand the maximum entity name length is 50 and the maximum entity attribute name length is 28.

Assuming i am not using an oracle database, is it possible to increase the max length above the set limits (e.g. 128 characters as per mssql limits)? 

Hi,

Right now that isn't possible. you can always create and ideia for it. But keep in mind that the same outsystems entity should be able to be created in different databases and maybe that's why they limit to lowest one.

Marcelo

yes and no ;)

they already "generate" the real name and map it to our own "understandable" name.

so the limitation is for me not understandable.



Yes you are right the Physical Name is different and could be the only one that is limited. but on entity table the physical name is saved on nvarchar(2000) while the name is limited on entity table to nvarchar(50). Yes maybe they could change this. That's why having an ideia for it is important ;)
