Question & Answer
In ClearQuest V18.104.22.168, what is included in ClearQuest Feature level 8 and metaschema version 23?
ClearQuest version 22.214.171.124 introduces feature level 8 and database metaschema version 23, which adds support for the following capabilities:
- User hooks for log on and log off events enable you to customize a metaschema to respond to such events. See technote 1631720 How to customize a schema to respond to logon and logoff events
- You can specify the ClearQuest client versions that are allowed to log on to a ClearQuest user database. See technote 632013: How to specify what client versions can access a ClearQuest database
- The maximum field length for the attachment file name, user name, group name, and database server name has been extended. See Table 1.
|Element||Field name||Maximum field length||Limitations|
| Increased from 50 to 254||There are OS limitations for the file system's max path length, so for the CQ clients and server, there will be some problem to the very long attachment file name. As it will save the attachment file temporarily, the total length (the path length + the file name length) may exceed the limitation of the max path length. In this case, please use a relative short file name.|
|Increased from 50 to 254|
|group||name||Increased from 30 to 254|
|database||server name||Increased from 30 to 255||Operating system requirements limit the real maximum field length for the server name to less than 255.|
