Dropdown filter shows a very long description in SPS 17

We are in the process of upgrading to SPS 17, BI SP 19.

After the upgrade in a sandbox, the dropdown box web item for Month/Year shows a long description like:

Month/Year: DEC 2008, Calendar Year:2008, Calendar month:12, Number of Days:31 ......

In our BI production system (SPS13) the Month/Year filter shows correctly as:

Month/Year: DEC 2008

Does anyone know why the web item filter shows up as with a long description in SPS 17?

Is there something like settings that we can change to show a short description: MMM YYYY (ie: DEC 2008) instead of a long one?

Thank you.

check the parameter: Max. No. of Summary Characters (MAX_SUMMARY_CHARACTERS)

You use this parameter to specify the maximum number of characteristics for the filter summary field.
