Summary:
Enhance: Make Description Field Longer
The description field in the resource table is 100 characters. I have no checked if there is a limit on
the UI of less than 100 characters (if there is they this is a UI bug). User also might be saying that you
can type in more than 100 chars but get an error on submit (also a UI bug).

The request from the user is to have the description field be longer. I think that normally a description
field would be longer, but perhaps we have limited it in order to conserve resources.

Here is user text:

i'm using jasperserver 0.9.2. If i create a new "Report Unit" with the Report Wizard, i can describe the report in the
description field. But it seems to me that the describtion is cut off after 100 characters. In my opinien the field
should be enlarged (better) or the textarea field should be limited to 100 characters.

This problem occures on Windows and Linux.

best regards

Holger Koch

Hi,

Description fields are now up to 255 characters long and proper length validation messages are displayed in case longer text is supplied.
The fix will be available in the next release.

Thank you,
Teodor
