Using Clarity XML Open Gateway to XOG in Other Work investments with a description greater than 254 will return the following error:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<XOGOutput xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/status.xsd"> 
<Object type="otherInvestment"/> 
<Status elapsedTime="0.0 seconds" state="FAILURE"/> 
<Statistics failureRecords="0" insertedRecords="0" totalNumberOfRecords="0" updatedRecords="0"/> 
<Description>[Error] :0:0: attribute "description" has a bad value: the length of the value is 759, but the required maximum is 254 characters 
<Exception type="java.lang.Exception"><![CDATA[ java.lang.Exception: Invalid xml data

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create an Other Work named ow1

  2. Enter a description greater than 254 characters, my sample has 759 characters

  3. XOG out the Other work

  4. XOG in the other work

Expected Results: The other work to xog in fine
Actual Results: <Description>[Error] :0:0: attribute "description" has a bad value: the length of the value is 759, but the required maximum is 254.


Clear the description field or shorten it in the XML file, then enter it in the Clarity User Interface after the Other Work investment is XOG'd in
