Automatic taxonomy aliases are not working; too many characters.

  • Updated

Automatic taxonomy aliases are not working. 

The alias name length may have exceeded 250 characters.

The system warns you and prevents you from manually creating an alias with more than 250 characters. However, if you have an automatic taxonomy alias rule in effect and you have multiple levels of taxonomy names that exceed a total of 250 characters, the alias is created but is not operable.


  • Split up your taxonomy hierarchy to avoid aliases that would exceed 250 characters.
  • Avoid an automatic taxonomy alias strategy that could easily create an alias in excess of 250 characters.
