It is our understanding that the description field in the different objects is a "system" field, and therefore its attributes cannot be changed.
For the requirement and requirement evaluation object types, we request the description field to be made a longer string length. We have many occasions (see 3 examples attached) where a regulator's requirement (ie obligation/clause, etc) is longer than the permitted string length for this field.
Currently we have to split the content across multiple requirements. This is causing our compliance assessors difficulties during the assessment process, and also we have to manually adjust our management information to ensure we reflect the correct number of requirements assessed.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
