How to increase the JIRA search results limit on the issue navigator
If your search matches a greater than 1000, navigating to the last page of results shows a message prompting the user to refine their search.
In JIRA, there is a default limit of 1000 rows set on the number of issues that can be returned in the Issue Navigator. This is done to prevent unnecessary performance degradation.
In JIRA 6, this default is set in the
jira.search.stable.max.results Advanced Setting.
In JIRA 5, this is controlled by jira.search.views.default.max and jira.search.views.max.limit.
Follow the instructions in Advanced JIRA Configuration. For JIRA 6, increase the
jira.search.stable.max.results to your desired row limit and for JIRA 5, you will need to increase both jira.search.views.default.max and jira.search.views.max.limit to the SAME value.
You will need to restart JIRA for your changes to take effect.
