As an editor I want to be able to enter longer strings in order to be able to enter more data.
Make sure that the string-limits config var covers all string types that we want to increase the length limit for.
Increase the configured length limit of strings on wikidata* to 1500 (T154660#4735134) using the string-limits repo option (recently introduced).
- string lengths (for monoling text, URL, string, external id (NOT TERMS :))) should be configured to be 1500 on wikidata*
- wikidatawiki, testwikidatawiki and beta wikidata all have the same length limits for the values changed
Original task description
We have had several requests that the length limit of the external identifier, string and URL datatype is too low to cover some usecases. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P234 is one example. We should increase the limit.
Open question: What should the limit be? What's the technical limit we run into?
Strawman proposal by Lydia: set all to 4000
Some numbers to help with the decision for external identifier:
InChI string lengths on the 92 Mio PubChem compounds:
