Provisioning attribute length restriction

    Hi all,

    some provisioning attributes have length restriction, for example, eTCompany may be up to 50 symbols only.

    Is it possible to change or avoid this restriction anyway ?
    Now it is actual for eTCompany, eTDepartment exactly.

     

    Regards,

    Andrej

    Hi Andy,


    I dont think you can change these restrictions but you can always use custom attributes which doesnt have character limits.

    Hi Andy,

     

    There is a binary file that need to be compiled in order to change that. CA support / services can help you with that.

    Hi Ankush,

     

    I have opened case with CA. They answered:

     

    I checked, it is not possible to change length, it is hard coded to 50 symbols.

     

    So, could you assist me ?

     

    Regards,

    Hi Andrej,

    As far as I know doing this is in no way supported and will mean that CA support will basically not touch a system that has this implemented.

    If you do it this way and have any issues that you need to raise (no matter what it is, IM only or prov related) you should first copy back the original binary and use this until whatever the issue is is resolved.

     

    If you need more chars, use customfields
