Jira Server/DC has the configurable limit on maximum number of characters allowed, available at: Jira administration → System → General configuration → Advanced settings. The default value is 32767 but it can be increased up to 2147483647 characters. Note: if you want to increase the text limit for TFS4JIRA, please set < property > jiraTextFieldCharacterLimit in the < file name> Web.config configuration file to match Jira Server/DC configuration.

In order to avoid the synchronization failures, the synchronizer will automatically truncate text that exceeds the Jira's limit. We'll show a message that the content of the field has been truncated and a link to the work item where the user can see the original text (from ADO). See the examples below.
