Description

Technique names are used in the technique filename, and must stay in the limits of maximum filename length of filesystems used on supported platforms. Currently there is an error when saving the technique if the name is too long for the server filesystem, but we should test on Windows especially that the limit for the complete path is not reached within CFEngine when using long technique names.

We should keep in mind that some people may be using name around the limit, and cannot easily change the name that was given at the creation of the technique, so this limit should probably be applied only on new techniques.

An Error occured! Unknown internal error during technique writing
