When using a Parse file to set temporary table field, if the string you are setting is longer than 1024 characters it gets truncated. This is because 1024 is a hardcoded value.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Use parse file step on a pattern.
  2. Parse a value (greater than 1024 characters) from the file to a temporary variable column on a temporary variable table.
  3. See that it gets truncated to 1024 characters. As such, when CI is updated with that value, the value on the CI's field has only the truncated 1024 characters.


Make sure that the value is less than 1024 characters.
