If audit is active and if you store more than 1K in a MLText field then it is stored but truncated and there is some data loss.
How to reproduce?
Install a 4.2.4 version using Oracle 11g
Allow fields “title” and “description” to contain more than 1K in the UI so it is not the limiting factor. To achieve this, you need to configure in <tomcat>/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/share-form-config.xml
The configuration is to specify explicitly maximum length for cm:title and cm:description.
Attached the “share-form-config.xml” configured for you for version 4.2.4.
Activate and configure an audit application. To do so please follow exactly and reuse the configuration files provided in
Start again and try to create anew document using share with a “title” having a length equal to 5k.
The title is truncated silently.
All the 5k should be stored in the DB.
