Increase the field size of the MapList to add new typing map names

Currently there is a field size limitation to the field "MapList" and due to this we are unable to add new typing maps to the existing list. Please increase the size of this field to add new typing maps.

How will this idea be used?

Currently there is a field size limitation to the field "MapList" and due to this we are unable to add new typing maps to the existing list. Please increase the size of this field to add new typing maps.


Rule name in BPN NA PRODUCTION :


INTERSAFE_RECEIVE_IB_SMTP_DEFAULT


Current map list :


INTER_TYPING_AIRPRODUCTS_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_AVERYBE_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_AVERYNL_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_JANPHARMA_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_UNILIVER_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_AVERYFR_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_CUMMINS_ORDERS_I INTER_TYPING_PPG_ORDERS_I NOURY ARIBA1


We want to add new map to the existing list but due to "MapList" field limitation we are unable to add the new maps. As a workaround , We are changing the existing map names to short format to accommodate new maps. But this approach will have an impact on the existing production flows. So, If we can increase the size this will be an advantage to implementation team.
