FormField: Length of name

Status: Delivered
by on ‎05-07-2018 02:20 AM

We have a workflow with a data source with quite long attribute names (more than 30 characters). In the process, unsightly effects appear. We think, that the attribute name (property name of element FormField) is capped after a certain length of character.

For example, we have the two attributes FOERDERAGGREGAT_FOERDERSTROMMIN_EINZELN and FOERDERAGGREGAT_FOERDERSTROMMAX_EINZELN. We want to edit these and fill in different values. After saving, both attributes will be filled by FOERDERAGGREGAT_FOERDERSTROMMAX_EINZELN (This value has already been filled into the database, can this be adjusted? Either by canceling the restriction or trigger a validation error.). We found a workaround for ourselves by typing a changed name of the attribute in the FormSettings, do not get the element with persisted = false any longer directly from the data and fill it with a default value

A colleague of yours reported this issue Workflow - Extend length of attribute names last year. The issue should be solved since GeoMedia Smart Client SP3 and GeMedia Smart Client 2018.
