Asset Description Field has 128 Character Limit But Special Characters Take Up 2 Characters (Doc ID 2129286.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2017

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Asset Description field has a hard limit of 128 characters and does not take multi language characters (i.e. French accented characters) as 1 character, rather has them set to 2. As a result, the management of asset descriptions in a language other than English is difficult.

Is there a way to workaround this limitation by configuration or customization?
