In the Smithfield - Migration Template project, we encountered an issue where DSP Generated Documentation causes Transform job failures. The error is caused by the limited length of the file name (must be less than 260 characters), and the directory name (must be less than 248 characters).
In the Migration Template project, we are using Full Construction as our Target Source and during the process, it creates a table in the Data Construction Server database. It uses the following table naming format: dcs[TargetTable]_FullConstruct_Template (i.e. dcsLFA1_FullConstruct_Template). Some targets would have a longer name due to merged tables or the same table being used in two different process areas. For example: KNVK table has been used in both OTC and P2P, and to differentiate the target, we named the target in OTC as ttKNVK_CUST and ttKNVK_VEND for P2P.
Below is the example of the File Path and Name generated by DSP for the following Object/Target:
- Process Area: TST - Object: Test Object - Target: ttKNVK_TESTING
