Re: Character limit on incoming SMS message


Hi Jasper,

Yes it is doable.  You are using 2.22 right ?

Hi DHIS2 Devs,

I'm encountering an error when attempting to send a long incoming SMS message to the DHIS2 (v2.22) API - /api/sms/incoming

The message is 809 characters, which the phone, telco and SMS gateway all seem to be fine with, presumably via a concatenated SMS, but DHIS2 seems to respond with a 500 Internal Server Error.

Looking at the catalina logs, it appears one of the SQL fields is limited to a 255 VARCHAR:
* ERROR 2016-11-04 09:24:46,236 ERROR: value toolong  for  type character varying(255) (SqlExceptionHelper.java [http-apr-8080-exec-9])

Would it be possible to expand that to something bigger? Say around 2000?
