    Hi there, Do you have any idea how can i modify/extend the 32 characters limit on the SAP job name ? Because, i have tried to activate a SAP job with a name longer than 32 chars and the result was: " 2016-02-01 22:30:14 - U2004067 Parameter 'NAME' is limited to '32' characters. 2016-02-01 22:30:14 - U2004031 Could not select jobs (selection: name ='SAP_JOB_WITH_NAME_LONGER_THAN_32_CHARS', group = '*', user = '*'). 2016-02-01 22:30:14 - U2004025 Job-script execution was aborted. " Thank you in advance!

    This field is passed onto SAP and the limitation on the characters is also 32 on SAP itself.  (See TC SM37)
    So no point in having it more than 32 characters long - my opinion.
