Max Limit of Issues for using Bulkclone plugin

What is the maximum limit of issues this plugin can clone?

What is the performance hit on server during bulk cloning of issues?

I am constantly getting the following warning message for all the issues that are cloned.

2013-05-10 00:09:41,378 http-bio-8525-exec-5 WARN spatruni 971x1981x1 1r2gtiq /secure/BulkCloneDetails.jspa [jira.plugins.bulkclone.BulkCloneDetails] The clone link type 'Cloners' does not exist. A link to the original issue will not be created.

If you have restrictions selecting more than 500 or 1000 issues you should define a higher limit.

In your JIRA data directory create a file named "". Put this lines in this file and define your limit: = 5000 = 5000

I hope this will help you :-)

The value in our properties files is found set to unlimited for administrators. I tested for one project and found that 60000 are cloned successfully but while cloning some projects, I got the following exception. Could you please let me know what might be the reason for this?

com.atlassian.jira.exception.IssueNotFoundException: Issue with id 'null' or key 'null' could not be found in the system
	at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.AbstractIssueSelectAction.assertIssueIsValid(
	at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.AbstractIssueSelectAction.getIssue(
	at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.CreateIssueDetails.getIssue(
	at com.lbcg.jira.plugins.bulkclone.BulkCloneDetails.doExecute(

One more issue I found.. When we click the back button after cloning the issues, project admin screeen is getting blank.

I wish to have a Cancel button on the bulk clone Screen. It would allow users to cancel while bulk cloning is in progress. This feature is extremely helpful while cloning huge number of issues.

Bulkcloning is not working beyond issue count 790000
