500 sub-issues limit

We've randomly seen JPD ideas display the Delivery Status field on the right side pane with the text in a popout message: "We could only calculate the delivery data partially, because you've hit the 500 sub-issues limit."


These issues do not have 500 epics (or epics+subtasks) linked to them.  Is this 500 epics+tasks+subtasks for all ideas in JPD?

Hi @Seth Mason 

We had to implement a limit because some users had 10000 linked issues in delivery and this was causing a 429 error for them limiting their access to Jira Software. 

The limit applies to the Jira Product Discovery project, not per idea. 

If you haven't encountered any issues with accessing Jira Software we can disable this limit for you. If you want to proceed with that, please provide your site name. 


I don't have 10k linked epics/issues from JPD.  I'm not running into any other issues beyond this popup.  How can I DM you my instance or can you just pull it from my email address?

@Hanna  We are going to need that limit removed or changed.  I only have 10 ideas in here yet I am encountering the error.  

I think people hitting over 10k is going to happen easily if Subtasks are included.  One could make the argument that Subtasks should be filtered out in Delivery and only standard issue level or higher is returned.  As a product leader, this is not where we will run scrum off of so understanding the subtasks is not 100% necessary.

50 Ideas in here with one epic each = 50 issues plus potentially 9 user stories in each epic is immediately 500.

Thanks! And welcome back :) 

Hey @Hanna


Could you please remove this limit from

We are realizing we hit this 1000 sub-issue limit very easily.

Hi @Andrew Durden

We have removed the limit for the respective site.

Deleted answer since I was wrong :)

But this should only be "per each idea" not per JPD instance. 

We do not have any JPD ideas linked to issues higher than epic.

Thank you @Erin for the feedback, I informed the team to look into addressing it.
