Creating a Text field validation w/ max length of 255, results in error

Hi -

Resource user data fields should have a max length of either 255 or 2,000, according to the database (table rsc_resources).  

I am attempting to add a new Resource user data field that utilizes the max of 255 characters.  In order to do this I need to create a new text validation that has a max length of 255.  No matter what I try though, when trying to set the max length of a new Text validation I receive the error in Workbench "the value of max length must be between 1 and 200".

Even if I copy the 'Text Area - 4000' validation and modify it to reduce the max length from 4,000 to 255 I still get this error.

This seems like a bug to me and just wanted to report it.

Hi Pepdwill

I was reading your descrption and I would like to know if do you have the same error if you fill that filed with less than 200 characters?

Please let me know if the warning is showed again.

No, it is fine if < than 200 is entered.

Hello Pepwill

I think the better way to resolve your issue is to open a ticket to analyze that Text Field Validation to resolve that problem

Best Regards
