The capacity of the associated business context is full.
Increase the field by a lesser amount that does not exceed the available capacity of the associated business context.
Regarding business context capacity, keep the following in mind:
- "On average, you can create 100 fields per business context and you have 1000 characters available for all business contexts, except Coding Block. You can see the currently available space when adding a new custom field in the Business Context Capacity indicator. The amount of capacity that a field requires depends on its type and the defined length. You can also check the remaining capacity in the Extensibility Cockpit."
