Change Items Per Page


1 - Is there a way to change the setting for Items Per page (ie.. 25, 50 etc)?


2 - If possible, is the a global setting or is this customizable by the user on the navigator?

It's a setting in each person's profile - "page size" last time I looked


I did find what appears to be the global setting for this Admin | System | User Default Settings |  Number of Issues displayed per Issue Navigator page.


So, know that I have answered that. Can this be altered at the User level that a user can alter on their own. If so, exactly what must they enter?

It's the other way around. Every user can set the number as I already said. What you've found is the default setting for those who do not adjust their profile.

I would like that as well. I do NOT want to change the setting for any search I might do. I want to change it for a SINGLE query that returns 100-300 records. I probably wouldn't even need that capability, but for the fact that the "quick search" does not limit itself to my current view (I so wish it would!). Instead, it returns search results in literally hundreds of other categories used by other departments in this very large organization. So search is, quite simply, of no use at all in my environment.

Number of results returned in a query is more likely to be a human thing. The two people I currently work with most closely have completely different approaches to the way they work and if I inflicted an arbitrary number on either of them, it wouldn't work for the other one. Steve likes a simple "top 10", Dave wants "as much as possible". Both from the same filter I'm afraid you've missed the point of "quick search". It finds stuff that is related to what you typed in. It can't be more clever than that because it can't read your mind.

There is a difference between a global search and a search within the multiple pages returned by the current query. The term Quick Search does not tell which behavior is present. As it happens, it performs a global search. As indicated, a global search is useless in my environment, because literally hundreds of records will be returned for each one that is in my current view. In this case, Jira CAN read my mind, because the query responsible for producing my current view is known. Were I to refresh the page, it would be reissued. So the system could add that text search to the current query. It would have to do so for each field in the query, unfortunately--but there is no other way to get the behavior of a browser page-search on the set of all results returned by the initial query. I get that different users have different styles, so it makes sense that it can't be a feature of the view. But I don't want it to be a lingering user-setting, either. I could live with a temporary setting to give me the results of my current search on a single page. That way, it would be only be done when manually selected. But that is the pretty much the same thing as the kind of quick search I could use--an addendum to the current search that adds additional criteria.

There is no search inside a search. Quick search is just an entry point into search. The context of the current search is that it is a search - there's nothing in it for JIRA to read your mind on how many results you might want - how do you expect it to know that you want 10 per page from "project = X" and 50 a page from "project = Y"?
