Size limits for data fields in JAZZ.


Thomas Stephens (1731816) | asked Aug 17 '15, 10:04 a.m.
I cannot find the limits on field data size in JAZZ.
Specifically the Description and name attributes in RRC/RDNG.
What is the link?
Looking for the limits in JAZZ/RM 4.0.5, but also for 6.x for comparison.
Limits for other attributes/fields im CM and QM are needed too.

Hi Thomas,

Please have a check the below link.

Supported attribute types

https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.team.workitem.doc/topics/c_work_item_customization_overview_web.html&scope=null

I think the DNG Getting started, might help in understanding attribute usage.

We have ~140 projects in use.
I need the size limits for description text, String attribute type, etc.
How much is too much.

If you mean the size limit per work item, then see the references that Arun provides above (for example, the Description field of a work item is a large-HTML, and the max size of a large-HTML string is 32768 bytes.   If you mean the total size across all work item records, that that is just limited by the storage capacity of the database system you are using to store RTC data.

Ok, so RTC is not JAZZ.
Max size of string data in RDNG attributes?
Limits on text in RQM Test Script steps?
Artifact text limitations?


Thomas Stephens commented Nov 05 '15, 6:11 p.m.

OK, so still no definite answer.
Let me put it this way:
If I paste 8 G of text into the Description attribute, how much of that gets stored?
If I paste 8G of text into a string attribute, how much gets stored?
If I set a list item text to "This is a long selection text to test handling long strings as attribute list item selection." How will the system handle the list item?

There is a pointer to various sources of this kind of information in Stephane's blog:
https://sleroyblog.wordpress.com/category/dng/
This is from 2013, so some things may have changed, but this should give you a general idea of how things are restricted.
If you have a specific question about a particular artifact field type, it would probably be best to post it as a separate question.
