How many workflow post functions is too many?

Just curious from a management as well as a performance standpoint...

I've seen transitions with almost 100.  They're very slow, but still work.

On top of the standard five, I would try to avoid adding more than 10-12 simple ones, or 2-3 complex (or dependent on other systems) ones if you want the transition to execute before your people get frustrated and impatient.

From a management point, working through a list of 70 "clever" things someone things they might need to do on a transition is a nightmare.  I'd rather have a couple that do some minimal stuff, and one that offloads the rest of the clever things as a single "Oi!  This just happened" to some middleware layer.

Thanks Nic, that makes a lot of sense. 

I'm curious--do you have guidelines or thoughts on when/why to build automation into post-functions vs. Automation/Automation for Jira?

100! Egad!

@Payne - yes, scary, and horrid to try to untangle.

@Andy J - I have no "simple" guidelines, it is absolutely "what will work for this team".  Do what works well for your people (not you as an admin - our job is not to be happy, but to enable other people to work well together, even when that particular config is really bad)
