Jira Software 8.22.x upgrade notes

Here are some important notes on upgrading to Jira Software 8.22.

 Upgrade notes

 8.22.2: Improved indexation for issue-related entities

To improve Jira performance, we've introduced a limit on the number of issue-related entities that will be indexed after the full issue reindex is triggered. By default, Jira will now index only 1000 newest comments, changehistory items, and worklogs. This value can be changed for each entity via a system property.

For more information about the feature and default limitations, see Safeguards in Jira DC index

The feature has been backported from Jira 8.22.2 to Jira 8.20.12. Learn more
