Metadata field length for L_DisplayId

  • retag add tags / EBM6Digital

When running a get Metadata against any Resource Class/Property combination that contains the L_DisplayId field it returns as a Char4. The actual data pulled includes the full MLS number so it doesn't get truncated unless you are creating database fields from the metadata and writing from that. I've manually adjusted mine as a workaround so I don't have to rely on the metadata. The field actually contains 8 characters (minimum) EB######.

Also, the Directions to Property (LM_Char100_1) is a Char100 and this field actually does get limited at 100 which truncates the directions (I can confirm on my own outputs as well as I have no workaround for this as the data actually appears to be limited.

Sorry about that the L_DisplayID field should be reporting a maximum length of 15 not 4 in the metadata.
The Directions to Property field (LM_Char100_1) is only 100 characters in width so that would be the maximum.
