Symptom

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.

Using the Issue Navigator

Cause

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.

Workaround

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.
