for a customer I need to know what the limit on text (i.e., text length) is on an Insight text field. The customer is using Insight 9.0.12.
From the database perspective, it's basically unlimited. The underlying data type is nvarchar(max) (in SQL Server).
There may (and probably should) be a limit to the text attribute type controlled via the java code. vs textarea attribute type.
If I was to guess, I would think that text maximum would be 255 characters and textarea is unlimited.
I tried longer characters while working on a groovy script. I could not figure if there is a limit, and if there is what the limit is. I read in https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Size-of-attribute-types-Text-and-Textarea/qaq-p/686941 that there is a limit of 450 characters, but it did not apply in my case
