The managing plans page states:

Project Limit: The number of projects you can load into a plan, which is 100. This limit only applies when you're creating a plan; you will not be able to create a plan if the total number of projects in the plan exceeds 100. 

 

Does this mean that once the plan is created, more projects can be added so that eventually the total number of projects will exceed 100? And that the limitation is only on the setting up step for the plan?

 

thanks,

Hello Luke and welcome to the Community!

Great question, I'll clarify this.

Plans do have a hard limit of 100 projects, this can not be exceeded (Even after the plan is created).

There are other limitations as well, for those, I'll reference our documentation:

 

Creating and deleting plans | Before you begin 

There are loading limits to take note of when using plans in Advanced Roadmaps. Loading limits essentially restrict the number of issues that can be loaded into a plan. 

Loading limits prevent the schedule of a plan from becoming too large for Advanced Roadmaps to calculate. If a plan becomes too large, this can cause your Jira instance to time out. To prevent this, you can consider creating multiple plans and spread the work across these plans, or you can exclude certain issues from the sources that you're connecting to your plan.

Absolute issue limit
  • The number of issues you can load into a plan, which is 5000.
  • Based on the selected issues sources, you won't be able to create a plan if the total number of issues would exceed 5000.

Hierarchy issue limit

  • The number of issues that can be displayed per hierarchy level, which is 2000.
  • Based on the selected issues sources, you won't be able to create a plan if the total number of issues would exceed 2000 for any of the hierarchy levels.

Project limit

  • The number of projects you can load into a plan, which is 100.

Team limit

  • The number of teams that you can access via shared team settings.

  • The limit for the number of teams that a plan can directly display is 50.

  • If you have more than 50 teams, some teams won't be displayed directly in the shared team settings page.

  • To find teams that are not displaying, enter the team name in the search box.

 

Plans | Limits on plan size 

 

To prevent Jira Software from timing out, there are limits on how big your plan can be.

Issue limits

A single plan can load up to 5,000 issues and can’t contain more than 100 projects. For larger projects, consider spreading the work across multiple plans.

Team limits

While there is no enforced limit on the number of teams that can be included in your plan, we recommend adding no more than 50 teams. If you add more, some teams won't display on the Teams tab and you’ll need to enter the team name in the search box.

I hope this information proves helpful.

Regards,
Stephen Sifers
