Turns out the SS Interface allows 55 characters, but the DB is limited to 32:


Could TCGroupName be increased to allow more descriptive names (& have lenght restrictions & validation added to the interface to catch & avoid truncation error messages from the DB).

For example, GraphCurve.Name is a human readable field & set at 256 chars in the DB

- would it be possible to increase all short human-readable fields in the DB like TCGroupName (especially ones that contain strings which appear in the interface) consistently to at least something like 256 chars (instead of a mix of 32, 55, 128, 256 etc)


e.g. these sorts of fields too...:
TestCaseName,
AgentName,
Activity.ItemID,
GraphInfo.Title,
ResultCatalogue.Name,
ResultCatalogue.DisplayName,
ResultData.TCName,
ResultData.Agent
ResultMessageData.TCName,
ResultMessageData.Agent,
TestSummary.TestRunName,
... etc...

(not forgetting length limits & validation in the interface to catch & avoid DB errors etc)

In v5.6, the TC Group name was expanded to 55 characters. It looks like the database was created in an earlier version, so that is why the TCGroupName field length is only 32 characters. You can do one of the following workarounds:
  • Expand the TCGroupName field in the database to 55 characters. You may need to drop the table and re-create it
  • Make sure your TC Group names are under 32 characters


Regarding increasing sizes of other fields, I posted this feature in the SUGGESTIONS & FEATURE REQUESTS forum here. It will most likely be added in the next version.


- Cheers
