      Description

      Summary of outcomes for Data Standard 3.2

      • Problem Addressed: Currently Department has a max length of just 3. 
      • High-level Reasoning: There is a need to have more than just 3 character codes to define a department. While a descriptor may be a better fit in the long run, increasing the max length to 60 would unblock this use case.
      • Changes Made: Updated Department max length to 60.

      Original ticket description follows:

      Is it possible to modify the max length of an attribute in an existing entity? 

      As an example, in the staffEducationOrganizationEmploymentAssociation entity, the department attribute has a max length of 3 characters. However, the department codes within our district are much longer - upwards of 7-8 characters. 

      The work around for us would be to create an extension which would reference the staff entity. 

       

      Thank you..
