    • We collect Jira feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      In enterprise instances, the number of custom fields and field configurations tend to increase rather fast, easily reaching more than a 1000, and JIRA struggles to handle this, especially in maintaining caches and performing permission checking.

      There are some improvements that could be made to better scale on this.

      Longer persistence of caching

      Populating caches is expensive, as it locks out multiple operations that depend on it. Currently, most of our field caches expire every 30 minutes.

      Expensive permission checking
      High memory usage
