Category:Custom fields
Target version:0.9.0
Resolution:Fixed Affected version:


Custom field's name is limited to 30 chars, but there is no message that informs the user about that (no information text). Also when longer value is submitted the error message "Name is too long" doesn't specify the maximum length.
Possible solution : put information text under the field or change the error message to something like "Name is too long. Maximum 30 characters allowed".
