    Background processing error: escalation point expiry action failed for escalation point of class type 'IncidentManagement.EscalationPoint' with primary key 'b06eadd3-XXX'. String or binary data would be truncated.

    The statement has been terminated.

    It means the Escalation point processing task failed.


    One possible cause:

    Check if escalation notification is redesigned updated recently.

    One possible solution:

    Increased mail subject or description column size in Database and issue is resolved.
