Currently statuses in Ticket Status Dictionary are 2 characters long. It is not possible to create status with length more than 2 characters.Since custom statuses start with "Z" and "Y", the range where second character in status description is letter/number has to used in your system.

For E.g. It can either of these - ZA….ZZ ,YA ….YZ, Z1...Z9 or Y1...Y9 etc.


Only 2 digits custom status code is allowed for status dictionary and this is current system behavior.
