Number field with large numbers

Is it possible to create a number field(scripted is also fine) which allows more than 12 digits in Jira

For cloud, the number field behaves as follows:

1. The number field has a maximum value of 100000000000000. (1 + 14 zeros).  This is a value maximum, not a digits maximum.  Increment this value by one and you get a max error.

2. The number field displays 3 decimal places. In the example above you could have 10000000000000.234 (1 + 13 zeros + 3 decimal places)

The easiest way to extend these limits would be via an add-in.  For example, Custom Fields for Jira Cloud appears to have this functionality according to its documentation.

Is it the same for server also?

Appears so!  Just checked it and I see the same error messages

seems there is a bug

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-60801

That means, it supports a maximum of 18 digits only, 12 before and 6 after the decimal point

I do not understand these mathematical calculations. However, I think certain algorithms should be used in applications for this. I am studying them now. All the information I got from difference-between.net. Btw, my long-standing dream is to do programming. However, I don’t have any knowledge in this area. Do you think I can start doing it now? How long will it take me to do this? Is it possible to make money in this field over time? I hope you will reply to me as soon as possible.
