Performance impact on using Issue Update event


We were planning to set-up notification for 'Issue Update' event.  Will this affect the performance of the system if all projects are set-up to receive notifications for 'Issue Update' event.

Assume , there are more than 1,000,000 issues on Jira server.

HI @Vaishakh Gurumurthy Mehendale It should not as the event will only trigger when there an update on the issue, so should not be an issue.

You already using this event in many notification scheme, you can that here


But make sure you configure the recipient wisely as if you added global groups like jira-users or your all company emp group it will send an notification to all the group members and if no of employees in your org is large then it will affect the performance of SMTP server you are using and you can see more notifications stuck in the mail queue in that case.


But to answer your questions should not be an issue until you used and configured it correctly.

Thanks @Sagar Mahajan .

One short extended question:

If , around 50000 issues are updated at the same time / within very short period of time ( Ex: within 5-10 seconds ) , this might affect SMTP but will it degrade performance of Jira server?
