Is there a way to increase the size of custom metadata fields in a metadata set to be greater than 250 characters? I can't see anywhere to change this and get an error when I try to enter more than 250:

An error occurred during editing: Hibernate flushing: Could not execute JDBC batch update; uncategorized SQLException for SQL [insert into cascade.cxml_dynamicmetadatafield (name, metadataValue, owningEntityId, id) values (?, ?, ?, ?)]; SQL state [72000]; error code [12899]; ORA-12899: value too large for column "CASCADE"."CXML_DYNAMICMETADATAFIELD"."METADATAVALUE" (actual: 577, maximum: 250) ; nested exception is java.sql.BatchUpdateException: ORA-12899: value too large for column "CASCADE"."CXML_DYNAMICMETADATAFIELD"."METADATAVALUE" (actual: 577, maximum: 250)

    Hi Blair,

    It does look like there is a limit of 250 characters for dynamic metadata fields. I searched our issue tracker and found did locate an existing improvement which would allow for more characters to be entered into those fields. I've gone ahead and moved this up in priority as it seems we've had a couple of folks run into this lately.

    I don't have an ETA on when this will be implemented, but you can check the release notes for any versions we make available to see if this made it in.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
