what is the character limit for multiline text field in JIRA?

what is the character limit for multiline text field in JIRA?

Hi @Prasad Nagarale 

According to one of our multi-line fields - 32,767 characters

@Ollie Guan beat me to this - but he's right, ours is limited to 32,767 (I assume this was a default).

You can modify the limit as a Jira Admin:

  1. Jira Administration > System > General Configuration
  2. Select the "Advanced Settings" button
  3. Change the jira.text.field.character.limit

It's set to 32,767 characters in Cloud - and is not editable.

You can vote for this to become configurable via JRACLOUD-63007
