Hi @Prasad Nagarale 

According to one of our multi-line fields - 32,767 characters

@Ollie Guan beat me to this - but he's right, ours is limited to 32,767 (I assume this was a default).

You can modify the limit as a Jira Admin:

  1. Jira Administration > System > General Configuration
  2. Select the "Advanced Settings" button
  3. Change the jira.text.field.character.limit

Hi @Bill Bill 

It's set to 32,767 characters in Cloud - and is not editable.

You can vote for this to become configurable via JRACLOUD-63007

Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ , 

 

Are there any Marketplace plugins available to solve this issue.

Hi @Goutham.P 

Not that I've seen.

What scenario do you have with text which is longer than 32K characters? Could you use a linked Confluence page potentially?
