Jira Agile Sprint name length


I found that JIRA Agile sprint name length is limited to 30-character long and wonder if this length is configurable. I am creating a series of sprints from external system and would like to preserve the sprint names. Some of the external system sprint names have 60-70 characters.

Thanks Clarissa.

It would be great if we can have more characters as I want to capture the Sprint Goal into that place so it is always visible on the board.
