What is the number of custom fields limitations in JIRA Cloud? and do I found how many are left?

Our organization currently is subscribed to JIRA and Confluence Cloud.  We are wanting to add more issue types and configure more custom fields.  We need to have an understanding what is the custom field count limitation and how many are available to consume or have been used in our current instance?

The technical limit is so large you'll have made your system utterly unusable before you put a dent in it.

To see how many you have, look at Admin -> Issues -> Custom fields.

As a general rule, I don't start to worry until a system hits 100, but if it has more, I start to look for reasons.  I've inherited a system with 4,000 once, and while it technially worked fine, it was a pig to look after and a total mess when it came to reporting.  If you're creating lots of custom fields, you really need to insist that they are used and useful and that they're used and named appropriately.
