What is the capacity of Forge app storage? Is there a separate Forge app storage per app installation by a user or Forge app storage is shared between all Forge app users?

What is the capacity of Forge app storage? 100 Mb per app meant Forge app storage capacity or Forge app size in Developer Day - YouTube? It’s not clear, in https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/platform-quotas-and-limits/ there is only info about an app size limit of 100 Mb, maybe it’s the size of the Forge app and not the capacity of Forge internal storage?
The limit of 100M is for the application or for one installation of the application by the user?
Is there a separate Forge app storage per app installation by a user or Forge app storage is shared between all Forge app users?

Hi @AlexeyAleinikov,

Did you see the table in the Storage Quotas section? As with almost all the other limits the actual quota depends on the total number of “seats” which is essentially the number of users your app has. As far as I understand the quota is global. Meaning, if you have 1000 seats in one instance and 500 in another your app will have a quota that accounts to a total of 1,500 seats which is shared across both instances.

Hope this answers your question!

Cheers,
Sven

Excellent link by @sven.schatter to exactly the right documentation! :slight_smile:

I just wanted to make a few clarifications:

  1. Most importantly, the quotas are not “global” for the App across all installations. The storage quotas are all “per-installation” or “per-product-per-site”. We have a principle in the Forge Platform that App Developers (and our shared customers) should never have to worry about the “Noisy neighbour” problem. In essence, if Jira tenant A is super busy with lots of users it should not be able to consume all of the quota for the same app that is installed on Jira tenant B.
  2. Being completely open and transparent, the limit for storage is currently 200MB per cloud site and it does not (yet) scale as that table above says. We have it on the backlog to get to in Q1-Q2 timeframe but currently, according to our analytics, there are no apps that are close to that limit except for one that was built by an Atlasisan and installed on one particularly busy instance with lots and lots of users.
