3423946 - Requirement for Product Description to be greater than 40 characters

Symptom

In app Manage Product Master Data, the user requires the Product Description to be greater than 40 characters.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app Manage Product Master Data.
  2. Input product and select.
  3. Product Description is limited to 40 characters.

Cause

Currently the field Product Description is limited to 40 characters. Technically, it is difficult to change the length of the field as it is used in many areas of SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Resolution

As a workaround, it is possible to create a custom field and then use Adapt UI to add the custom field to app Manage Product Master Data.
