I am getting a restriction message for 50 fields. while I need to create around 4x to 5x custom fields. How can I increase the count limit??

I ran into the same issue in a team managed project. 

Today, I specifically set out to test the ability to share global custom fields.  I accessed the target project and added a new custom field to re-confirm the "50 field" limit/error ( I had previously gotten the error upon attempting to add an additional field).  

However,  I did not get the error this time.  I added 72 custom fields specific to the target project and I'm still not getting an error. 

The behavior is really inconsistent.   I'm going to reach out to clow@atlassian.com to inquire.

Hi @Akhilesh Mishra ,

You can create up to 50 custom fields in your team-managed projects.

https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/customize-an-issues-fields-in-team-managed-projects/

company-managed projects maybe more suitable for you and it supports more custom fields.

Migrate between team-managed and company-managed projects

Hi @Akhilesh Mishra  and welcome,

there is a specific restriction for team-managed projects. Please take a look here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-78719

 

Atlassian update (Feb 2023)

Hi everyone, thank you for your interest on this ticket. We’ve recently introduced the ability to re-use global custom fields in team-managed projects, which allows you to effectively use more than 50 custom fields in team-managed projects. This comes with the added benefit of being able to re-use fields across projects. Global custom fields also have a higher limit of options (note that we do not recommend having too many as it can affect performance of your Atlassian Cloud Instance). If you have a specific need to create more than 50 team-managed fields, please reach out to me at clow@atlassian.com so that I can understand your use cases better.

note: functionality of fields created in team-managed projects still remain the same and will not show up in other team-managed projects. Please feel free to reach out with any feedback on this new feature. 

 

Hope this helps,

Fabio
