Maximum length group names

Why can't a group name be longer than 25 chars? Amongst all software tools we use, 1Password seems to be the only one with such (rather strict) limitation. This means we're forced to introduce a modified naming convention for 1Password only. I guess this will also affect our planned SCIM integration.
Is there a good reason for limiting the length?

    I agree... these are rather strict rules. Looking at our database constraints for this field, I see that it'd allow up to 60 chars. So technically we could up it up to that. I suspect that the 25 char limit has more to do with the group names looking bad in the UI beyond that than anything technical. We've changed the UI to accommodate longer names and reduced the places where longer group names would cause issues.

    I've filed an issue in our tracker to take a look at this and see what can be done.

  • Awesome! Small change but really makes a difference for us. Thank you!
