Hi Mayank,


As far as I know, there is no limitation in the number of files attached of an issue, however there is a limit for the number of attachments displayed (30 by default) on a single issue throught the UI.


This can be modified as shown in the Configuring file attachments article:


Configuring the number of files shown in the content of ZIP-format files on issues

By default, JIRA shows a maximum of 30 files in the content of ZIP-format files attached to an issue. To change this maximum value:

1. Access JIRA's Advanced Settings page. (See Advanced JIRA configuration for more information.)

2. Edit the value of the property by clicking the existing value and specifying the maximum number of attachments you want to show on an issue.

3. Click the Update button to save the new value in the JIRA database.
