Size of attribute types Text and Textarea Edited


I haven't found what limits the two Insight attribute-types Text and Textarea have.

Is it declared somewhere?

Hi Svante, 

The limit for Text is 450, and unlimited for Textarea.

I have updated the documentation at to show this limits.

Best Regards

254 characters for text and then whatever your database can handle in a large object column (i.e far more text than is generally useful in a field)

Hey Nic,

Thnx! But this is for JIRA, right? I tagged this question for Insight for JIRA which seems to have been removed.

 I will re-tag this question!

Thnx Alexander, this was exactly what I was looking for. Is this piece of information available in the Insight documentation somewhere?

Can you convert your comment reply to an Answer so that I can Accept it?
