I need to replace this:

<xs:element name="artifact" minOccurs="0" nillable="true">
        <xs:simpleType>
          <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
            <xs:maxLength value="100"/>
          </xs:restriction>
        </xs:simpleType>
 </xs:element>

Open in new window


With this:

<xs:element name="artifact" minOccurs="0" nillable="true">
        <xs:simpleType>
          <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
            <xs:maxLength value="10000000"/>
          </xs:restriction>
        </xs:simpleType>
 </xs:element>

Open in new window


Same thing with increased maxlength attribute.
