Host group name limited because lookup_value 'match' is a string
bug http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/7038 was fixed by limiting the size of host name.
The bug should have been fixed by changing 'match' to a text field in the lookup_value table
this wasn't possible because there is an index on it.
The exact problem is explained in the related issue
- Related to Bug #7038: PGError when hostgroup name exceeds 245 characters added
- Subject changed from Host name limited because lookup_value 'match' is a string to Host group name limited because lookup_value 'match' is a string
- Category set to Parameters
- Related to Bug #7624: location and organization char names are capped to 246 instead of 255 added
this refactoring should also return location name to unlimited after it is limited to fix #7624
