Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit ITX-I-212 ITXA-Expand MapName max length to 240 chars for Sterling Integrator maps imported to ITXA.

Support for ITX map file name to be more than 50 characters Merged

ITXA only supports 50 Character filenames which makes it impossible for customer to switch from B2Bi mapper to ITXA mapper. We have a customer asking for this because their B2Bi map names are longer than 50 chars and they have over 4000 B2Bi maps they are looking to migrate to ITXA.

How will this idea be used?

It would make easier to migrate and avoid limitation on file name
