Hi Mikkel,

You can change the number of suggestion by:

  1. create a file named jira-application.properties
  2. Within this file, insert the line "jira.ajax.autocomplete.labelsuggestion.limit = 30"

Notice that I have configured the value to be 30. You can change the number of suggestion according to your preferences.

Once you have saved the file, placed it on the JIRA-HOME directory, and then restart your JIRA instance for the changes to take effect ;)

Hope this helps.
