Splunk Alerts getting triggered to ServiceNow using Splunk Add-on for Service Now gets truncated


Hi Splunkers

Im using "Splunk Add-on for Service Now"  to send  triggered alerts to servicenow.

Im trying to pass the alert name , alert time to the short description field in service now. In Service now i see the results populated but it gets truncated exactly at 80 character . 

I checked with service-now team as well in my organisation and they dont have any such limit at their end.


Additionaly when i checked the add-on i see the index_lenght =80 check has been used in the addon code. will this could be the reason behind the results getting trucated. Any one else faced this issue?
