Longer index names

When creating an enterprise geodatabase index in ArcGIS Pro:

If I enter an index that is longer than 16 characters, ArcGIS Pro automatically truncates the index (to 16 chars):

  • The index name I wanted: a2345678901234567
  • The index name I got:        a234567890123456


Most enterprise databases now support object names that are 128 characters long (example: Oracle was 30, now 128).

The 16-character limit in ArcGIS Pro is too short. When we have hundreds of tables with multiple indexes, we need long index names so that we can clearly describe and differentiate between like-indexes.

Could Esri please consider supporting longer index names when creating indexes via ArcGIS Pro?
