    My organization has a SQL Server with many databases with names longer than 31 characters long. These are not recognized by ArcGIS Pro (or ArcMap). We can't change the names of these databases, because they're important for a wide variety of uses outside of ArcGIS. Please allow these databases to be visible to and usable by ArcGIS Pro. We're unable to use ArcGIS as a regular part of our workflow until this matter is resolved.

    This limitation is described here: http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/manage-data/gdbs-in-sql-server/enterprise-geodatabase-limits.htm
