Hello @Subramanya H S
Thank you for reaching out.
There is no hard limit in the number of options that you can add to a custom field in Jira Cloud (Select lists of Single or multiple choice), however, a custom field with a high number of options might take a while to load when typing characters on the search.
That being said, I would recommend to don't have a list with too many options in order to avoid performance issues. In case you start to feel any slowness to find options with the field, please look for another select list to split your options.
Additionally, please ensure you are following our Storage for Jira and Confluence documentation. There are no hard limits for the storages specified there at this moment, however, once we enforce those limits you might not be able to add more content to your site if you have exceeded the plan limit, having to upgrade it to another plan.
Let us know if you have any questions.
@Petter Gonçalves Can you confirm this is still the case? I have a custom drop down with around 60 items and I went to add one more and now I cannot add anything. It is greyed out and not selectable. I have found other posts that make it seem like it was limited to 55? Any way to change that back so I can add a couple more items?
In my case, I am using Jira Software next-gen...
I have a slightly similary post here https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Maximum-number-of-options-in-a-dropdown/qaq-p/2390152 - wondering if there is any kind of "sweet spot"/threshold of how many items we can/should add to a select.
We currently have about 30000 that I think might affect performance but I dont want to implement it if 1. it affects performance and 2. cannot be measured in terms of performance.
I am using values in an automation and the limit I have is 15 displayed - played around with this and that's confirmed it so this "There is no hard limit in the number of options that you can add to a custom field in Jira Cloud (Select lists of Single or multiple choice)" is BS
