Upcoming changes: Introducing per issue limits for list fields in Jira Issues

Hi Developer Community,

We will be introducing per issue limits for list fields in Jira Issues. Please have a look at the Introducing per issue limits for issue list fields changelog entry for more details.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and support as we work to provide you with better and more reliable experiences on Jira. If you have any concerns or feedback, please comment in the section below. We’d love to hear how we can help you!

Hello,

Please can you confirm how this will affect the GET requests?

i.e. for GET rest/api/{v:2|3|latest}/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/comment

If an issue previously had 5000+ comments, after the deprecation will the API simply stop returning values after it has reached 5000 comments? Will the response still be 200 OK once it has returned the maximum number of comments?

Kind regards,

Jasmin

Hi Jasmin,

If the issue data already exceeds the limits, it will be converted into an attachment within the issue. If an issue previously had 5000+ comments, the GET API will return a maximum of 5000 comments with a 200 OK response, and the additional comments will be transformed into an attachment within the issue.

Regards,
Shiraine
