Remove extra characters from display

You may run into an issue where extra characters are added to the end of columns in the ThoughtSpot display. This can happen when you use SSIS to ETL data into ThoughtSpot, and the data types in the SSIS data flow are all DT_STR (single byte).

To fix this issue, add the following gflag to simba_server:

gflag { key: "convert_wide_str_to_utf8" value: "true" }

Note: This flag is turned on by default from ThoughtSpot version 4.2.
