You can't do this on Server Jira without making code changes, so there's no way you can do it on Cloud/OnDemand

I'd question the need for over-long queries though - the requirement implies you are building very long queries which is likely to be inefficient and suggests your process is lacking some information for grouping issues together.. Why are you trying to run vastly complex queries?

Hi Nic,

I have the project which has more than 200 components but in that i'm the component lead for only 100 components and few user create the task and work on it, and they also works on other component too. so i want to retrieve those component related task alone in JQL. so include those components in JQL,That is why the query text was exit the range.

200 components implies your project is too complex and should be split up.

I'm not sure why you are listing them all though, when you could just say "... component in componentsLeadByUser()..." as part of your query.

(For other component leads, you can say component in componentsLeadByUser("Bob") )
