We have a requirement where we have string variables that we want to limit a user from entering more than 100 characters. We have attempted this by creating a STRING variable and setting the min/max values to 0/100 and then populating the error message. However when we use this variable in the portal, a user can still create variables with greater than the maximum that we set. If there is no value populated we are noticing the error uses the "help message" not the error message that we provided. May we get a correction for this?
