Hey Yuri,

Can you give me some reproducing steps for this please?


Comment 5 Yuri Rudman 2018-01-09 17:36:02 UTC
Luke, you can reproduce underlying error "PG::StringDataRightTruncation: ERROR:  value too long for type character varying(255)":

1. Upgrade version 3.2 to 4.5
2. from Rails console execute: MiqTask.create(:name => "c"*5000)


Comment 6 luke couzens 2018-01-09 19:47:24 UTC
