Is there any limit in number of Issue Links for a Jira Issue?

We use Jira Cloud prenium

I don't see technical limit but there may be a software limit that could impact the performance of jira.

We use linked issues a lot. For the moment everything is fine but I am afraid to reach the limits of jira in the future and I wish to anticipate that.


thanks for information.

Hello @Melanie Liguet 

I have not found any documentation yet on specifics of how numerous linked issues will impact performance, but it will definitely impact performance at some point when trying to display an issue with numerous linked issues. How many issues are you expecting to have linked to one issue? Tens, hundreds, more?

Hi @Trudy Claspill 

I totally agree and that's what worries me.
Currently we have a issue with 544 links and this will continue to grow.

I would advise you to explore why you are having one issue linked to 544 other issues. What problem are you solving with that, and is there another, better way to address it.
