When it says "Bulk changes are currently limited to 1,000 issues." is that per day? Edited

I bulk moved 1,000 issues from ToDo to Done but still have a few thousand more to move. I read that increasing the limits could affect Jira performance but I'd like to know if I can bulk move 1,000 tomorrow or a different day instead as to not exceed the limit?

The limit states, "Bulk changes are currently limited to 1,000 issues." but is this per day or how often is the limit? Any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Hi Lily,

welcome to Atlassian Community!

The limit of 1000 issues for a bulk change is not bound to a single day.

It just means you can process a maximum of 1000 issues per operation. As soon the operation is finished you can process another 1000 issues.


Hi Daniel!

Thank you so much for the information! How long do operations usually take to finish? Or is it something where I need to refresh/logout and log back into Jira to bulk move again?

The amount of time a bulk change needs to finish is hard to estimate but you should be presented a progress bar. As soon it is 100% ("finished") you can continue and start a new operation right away.

thank you so much!

So I bulk changed 1,000 and saw the status bar achieve 100% but it still shows the "Bulk changes are currently limited to 1,000 issues." 

Any thoughts or recommendations?

All I can imagine is that there are more then 1000 issues selected in total - and/or the previous ones are still selected / again selected - while they should not.

I am absolutetly not aware of any time-related restriction and was also not able to find any indication this could be the case.

A logout/login should not do anything bad but I would not think this would be of any benefit either.

Can you make sure you only selected "the next relevant amount of issues" you want to process?

Ohh I see, okay thank you so much!
