Description Partha Aji 2016-03-03 20:00:30 UTC
In Rails 4.2 the default limit for PostgreSQL and SQLite adapters
changes to unlimited from 255 characters.  MySQL remains at 255 chars.
Existing migrations should be changed to specify the length, e.g.

  t.column :name, :string, :null => false, :limit => 255

This will ensure that the schema generated on a new installation exactly
matches the schema from an old installation, so there won't be varying
versions of the schema in the wild.

Please provide verification steps to test this.

Comment 7 David Davis 2016-05-28 21:39:48 UTC
Try entering a value longer than 255 chars for one of these fields:


It must be a new install. A few example fields include activation key name, content view name, lifecycle environment name, etc

Verified in Satellite 6.2 beta Snap 15.2

Forms accepting string input are correctly performing string length validation.
