Description of problem:
I can set the system's description more than 255 characters. There should be some limit set on it.

Comment 3 Partha Aji 2014-06-17 18:35:46 EDT
The systens description Max length was changed to 1000 characters. That is the reason its not complaining at 255 for you. Please fail the bug if it doesnot complain after crossing  1000
Comment 4 Sachin Ghai 2014-06-18 02:08:11 EDT
Thank you Partha for confirming the limit. So as you said, UI does complain on exceeding the description length more than 1000 char. Moving this to verified.
