When an Automation Engine (AE) Variable with a value longer than1024 characters is written to a script and/or process output with :Print &VARA#,
the output will be limited to 1024 characters and the missing part will be indicated with “…”.
This is the expected behavior because the :Print function has the limitation: maximum 1024 characters
as documented in our product documentation:
The purpose of the :Print limitation is to avoid extensive growth of reports and indirectly to maintain the overall Database and AE performance regarding the RT- Report Table.
The :print limitation is independent from the VARA object length which does not have such a limitation.
VARA Objects: Limit for Values Removed”:
If the handling of longer Variable Values is necessary you might use them on OS level.
