This application is designed to speed up slow and heavy Jira end points such as mentions and assignee. This application was developed when the regression bug was identified in 8.16.1 and has been battle tested and proven to be very efficient and deliver results fast while reducing server load.
During your trial you will be limited to 200 requests in a minute, this should be more than enough to see a great result in your system and there is a servlet in the manage add ons page to allow you to monitor how much of the service you are consuming. For example mentions will fire off a system generated call when you click comment and again when you type @. From there every time you enter a key you will consume one call. Don’t worry the limit is only enforced for a minute so once a minute has passed the system will allow another call to be used.
