Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR: 
The ID length values have changed as a result of a recent upgrade to 18.2.
 
EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:
ID lengths specified in the application/database should remain the same after upgrade.

STEPS:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
     1. Access P6 (Web or Client).
     2. Notice there are Project IDs that are longer than 20 (which is the max character size).
     3. Before the update, the ID lengths were not set to the default values (20).

BUSINESS IMPACT:
Due to this issue, users cannot ensure that the max size remained the same after 18.2 upgrade.
