'Length of subject exceeded allowed number of characters.'


SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service work center.
  2. Select the Tickets view.
  3. Select Ticket ABC (ABC represents the Ticket ID).
  4. Select the Reply hyperlink.
  5. Maintain a Text in the Text field.
  6. Select the Send button.

The following Error message is displayed and the E-Mail cannot be sent:

'Length of subject exceeded allowed number of characters.'


The limit of characters for the Subject field in a Ticket is 255. Since the incoming E-Mail was received in the Cloud for Customer tenant, this limit was not exceeded in the incoming E-Mail.

When replying to a Ticket, the text RE: [ Ticket: ABC ] is added to the subject, which triggers the error, if the Subject is exceeding the limit of 255 characters.


In order to send out the Reply, you can edit the Subject manually.
