Fix Version/s: 8.4.2
Introduced in Version:8
Support reference count:1
Symptom Severity:Severity 2 - Major
Bug Fix Policy:
Both background and foreground reindex requests fail due to a field that has more than 32766 bytes in the field.
This affects JIRA 8.0 and above.
In JIRA 8.0, Lucene was upgraded from 3.3 to 7.3. Lucene will now throw an exception instead of silently failing.
See Lucene upgrade for more information.

Each such event will emit an ERROR level message to the logs, allowing plugin developers to pinpoint the offending fields. The log entry looks like this:
Currently there is no known workaround for this behavior. A workaround will be added here when available
