As an app developer, I need to know the rate limits that my app is subject to

Description

Jira currently does not publish rate limits despite the API returning rate limit responses at times. The current rate limiting guidance explains that rate limits are not published because rate limiting is implemented by concurrency and resource limits. However, there are use cases, such as migrations, where apps need to know the rate of API calls that can be safely made before rate limiting may be applied.

Note: There is an equivalent request for Confluence: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-71116

I do not have the ability to "Vote" on this issue, echoing Danny. After being rate limited and reaching to to support I was informed there is no 'real' advice I can be given and to use parameters set in this general doc. Would be nice to understand the criteria on a per user or per organization basis to set proper guidelines.

We would like to know and test our Jira app’s rate limits prior to publishing. Is there any further guidance for this?
