Person_source_value field size

Are there any reasons why we should not increase the field size for person_source_value to accommodate a string larger than 50 characters? For example would this have any impact on the use of Atlas or other tools? Would this somehow violate a convention?

Thanks, Tom Galia

I don’t believe so, increasing the size would not violate any ETL/CDM conventions that I can think of.

Thanks Claire!
