We are using JIRA Server, we are going to have three dropdown custom fields with 100,200 and 50 values in it. Is there any limit for dropdown list or any suggestions on this.
Can we use labels custom field instead of dropdown list?
I don't know if there's a limit on the number of custom field selections, but I'd want to test the performance of a field like that, to make sure it doesn't slow the loading of the create screen, for example.
Maybe someone else from the Community can respond with more info about option limits?
As far as labels, they are super felxible, which makes them both great and horrible at the same time. :) Your end users will have to be careful to use the needed format, syntax, and spelling, for you to effectively query on them.
For example, let's say I'm wanting the user to tag an issue with the country they are from. Some users might add: US, U.S., USA, U.S.A., United States, United States of America, trump-land, plus a typo or two.
Hope this helps and maybe got a laugh (or cry) for "trump-land",
