    Description

      The 255-character constraint in MDL-45242 is not shown to the administrator in Users > Permissions > User policies nor in Users > Accounts > User profile fields. The default length of new text input fields is 2048 characters and it's not obvious to site administrators why new fields are not available to be selected as a new user identity.
