Creatio by default allows a user to choose between 50, 250 and 500 as max lengths of a Text column from the Object designer. In a use case where Creatio co-exists with an external system and both share the same fields, it becomes important to maintain consistency with respect to data types and lengths.
Right now, the only way to enforce a custom length (say String(8)) is to implement field validators on the Creatio GUI and write custom code to validate any input received via server side integrations. However, the field in the DB would still have 50, 250 or 500 as the length. This is not ideal.
It would be very useful to permit defining custom lengths of fields Eg String(8) from the Object designer which directly creates those custom lengths in the database.
