The important line is:



XML rendering is required for Displaying Search Results in XML. One common use is the jiraissues macro in Confluence. In a large instance, this can cause poor performance because the results are not paged and require XML transformation.


Change the jira.search.views.max.limit parameter. Make sure to do this one, rather than the default max limit. See Limiting the number of issues returned from a search view such as an RSS feed.

Also, the following Feature Request was created to improve the performance of XML rendering on Jira: JRASERVER-20346 - Getting issue details... STATUS
