Drawbacks of having large amount of projects on Jira

Hi All

Is there any significant drawback of having a large amount of projects (say hundreds and hundreds) as opposed to tens of them on Jira?

The only disadvantage I can think of is that during project import (if required) it would take a lot of time in replicating the configurations on the destination server. But apart from that can you think of any other?

Mostly create Issue page is going to have a severe performance issues with large number of projects (to load all the projects + their issue types).

Hi Rahul,

Permissions checks are very expensive, so my suspicion would be that permissions management would be your biggest overhead and computational expense from having multiple projects.

All the best,

thanks john for the answer
