When importing a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file to ArcGIS Online, changing the field type from Integer to String causes the field's length to increase to 2,147,483,647.
Modify a few rows in the field to include text characters to force ArcGIS Online to read the column as a String field instead of requesting it to be converted in the process. This field then gets a field length of 256. Then edit the text value back to the original number in ArcGIS Online.
