Salesforce Input tool to SQL Service - field truncation


I am using the Salesforce input tool to load SQL Server.  It works for most objects and fields.  But on the Opportunity object the Alteryx Salesforce Connection lists the field StageName as 40 characters long – but there are 248 records in Salesforce that are roughly 50 Characters long.   How can I fix this?    I changed the size of the field in SQL and that does not fix the issue, it is the 40 character on the Salesforce input side that seems to be causing the issue.


I believe Opportunity and StageNames are both standard Saleforce objects and fields.  It looks like we extended the field to 50 characters years ago, but Alteryx does not to adjust this field length for this new workflow.

Looks like it's been awhile. Were you able to get this figured out?
