Allow to increase the size for an existing Short Text field in ClearQuest from
Currently in ClearQuest ALM Schema, size of the Short Text field cannot be extended after a version is checked in. But there are reasosns where field size needs to be increased due to Business Needs. Truncating the size might cause an issue for all the existing records, but we should be allowed to increase the size but still stay in the maximum limit of 255 characters.
Only option now is to create a new field. But this causes an issue to change all the hooks where the field is used and also to change reports and other tools that are integrated with ClearQuest as well.
Please note, the size to be increased will be within the max size (255) allowed by ClearQuest.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
