How many linked issues can have Epic

jan_ambroz February 29, 2024

Hi there, 


Based on this update since the end of March, the Issue can be linked to no more than 2000 issues.

But this limit excluded child issues and sub-tasks, does this mean that Epic can have linked more than 2000 child issues after this restriction is applied?


Thank you

Hi @jan_ambroz,

The article doesn't say anything abut a limit on child issues. So there is nothing in this article about such a restriction.

To be honest, I have never ever seen an epic with even close to 2.000 child issues. And if I saw one, I would immediately take action to see what is going on there, as that does not seem to make any sense at all. The same goes for the number of issue links mentioned in the article.

Hope this helps!
