A label in a field of a Modal Form AppComponent can't exceed 80 characters without breaking the whole form

@Bastien_Siebman I know this may be a bug but I think Asana prefers for API issues to be in the API forum section.

@Marie is that correct, or should developer/API issues go here?

I wasn’t sure, waiting for confirmation.

Yes, @Phil_Seeman is right, let’s keep all API related topics in the the #forum-en:api category!

@Kem_Ozbek is this something you can help with?

Hi @Bastien_Siebman , thanks for checking in on this one. I was able to reproduce this one my end as well (using your form response). Note that a label does have a limit of 80 characters as described in the schemas: Modal forms

Regardless, I’m checking in with our team directly to confirm this behavior. Will report back here!


I definitely understand the limitation but as you might imagine I had to scratch my head for a while to understand what was happening. Even your UI Builder does not give a clear error in this case, it errors on the wrong line.
