Common Data Service Text Field Length Error Message

When I try and set the length of a text field greater than that allowed, I get the error:
The table could not be updated: Updating cr2e2_TCOCPlannerImport.cr2e2_taskname.Length is not valid because this is an indexed attribute and hence cannot have size greater than 1700. Original value:1000. New value:2000. Existing index is ndx_cr2e2_TaskName with type=6.

 

I am trying to set the text field size to 1000.  The error message indicates I am trying to set to 2000.  I suspect internally this is being doubled to allow for the index, however, the error message is misleading.  Setting to 500 characters is permitted.

 

I wish Microsoft implemented a bug bounty program... I would be rich 🙂
