limitations on rest API


How many webhooks we can configure in jira.

How many number of notification we can push  per day using webhooks.

Is there any number limitation for calling rest API in cloud.

You can make 500 API requests per 5 minutes.

I don't see any performance issue for my webhook push notification in day to today.

If you are really looking on performance perspective for REST API call use cookie parameter to get quick response and logout the session once action is complete.

Thank u @Mahendran 

I have another doubt in above answer.

suppose there are 10 JIRA users in an organization.If they call JIRA rest api all requests will 

go through same IP only.

So my doubt is 500 requests per user or 

500 requests per IP.
