Test Case name character limit

Post by Eamonn » Wed Jan 16, 2019 1:07 pm

I have a Test Case name which gets truncated after typing in when adding a new TC. Is it possible to increase the TC name character limit and where might I change this limit. Has it hidden consequences in areas like the test execution, reporting or even Revision Control repository?

Hi,

It seems that TC/SF names are limited to just 100 characters. And as far as I know, there is no publicly available way to overcome this limit. To be honest, I've never reached this limit and I'm working with Ranorex over 6 years ;) I think you should simply use shorter names and then fill description column with more detailed description. Honestly, it does not make sense to use lengthy TC/SF names ;)

Client requirement on naming convention to be used. Have advised workaround based on similar points as you have stated. Just asked the question in case it was possible. Thank you for the clarification.
