JIRA json import large file 500 MB

Hi There,

I'm trying to import a large JSON file (500+ MB) into the JIRA system.  I had to change the system setting attachment file size to 500+ MB in order to load the JSON file, but after the file was loaded and clicked "Beginning Import", the Firefox browser just showed "Connecting..." and nothing happened for hours.  Does anyone know if there is a file size limit for JSON importer and how to resolve this issue?  Note that I had successfully imported JSON file size up to 75 MB.

I divided the large JSON file into several 100MB or less JSON files and was able to import successfully.
