Set maximum number of tickets per time period

Johannes Nyberg January 10, 2023

Hi Atlassian! 

I´m working in Jira Work Management Cloud. We use the company-managed business project. 

We use the timeline and the calender quite a lot to plan the work. What we want to do is to ensure that we never have more than four ongoing tickets during a certain time period. See images below. Number 1 and 2 both have overlapping issues where we have more than four tickets ongoing during a certain period. Picture 3 would be fine. 

Is it possible to create a constraint that monitors and ensures this does not happen?

Hi @Johannes Nyberg

Trust you are well.

If it's still relevant and you are up to Partner Apps I would suggest to try Time in status Calendar & Roadmap App. There we have daily Work-in-progress (WIP) limits configuration to highlight what's exceeding.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Hi Johannes,

Are you using a Kanban project ?

If so you can limit the number of issues that are in progress. More info here -

Thanks for your response, Tara. I am using a kanban project within Jira Work Management. To limit the number of tickets based on status is one thing we´ve tried already.

We had another idea to limit the number of tickets that has the same Start & Due Date?
