Last updated on SEPTEMBER 23, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Health Sciences Data Management Workbench - Version 2.4.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

InForm Data Model

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
--------------------------
The initial length of  a column was set as 200 in InForm UAT, when data was loaded in DMW it showed that the length of this term is 200 in DMW as well.

User changed later the column length value from 200 to 100 in UAT in InForm, and then, reloaded the Metadata in DMW.

In DMW, the length value of  this column still shows as 200 (older value) instead of 100.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------------------
Expect in DMW the length value of AETERM shows as new value of 100 instead of 200 (older value).

Changes

 Decreased the column length. For example, from 200 to 100.
