My confederate jasmine is growing on a chain link fence. It is so overgrown that it has to be cut back. When should this be done and how much can we cut it back

For general rejuvenation, prune it back 1 or 2 feet beyond where you want the new growth to emerge. How far you cut it back isn't as important as when you cut it back. Star jasmine blooms on last year's growth, so wait until immediately after it flowers to do any heavy pruning or you'll risk cutting off next year's buds.
