You can also change the number of issues displayed per page in your personal user preferences. :)

Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for.

Hi Jean

I currently see 50 issues at a time. Is there a way to display all issues at one time?

Yes you can by setting the following in jira-config.properties

jira.search.views.default.max = 100

However, this is not recommended at all. This will potentially cause performance problem of your JIRA instance you are currently running.

For more information on this, you can refer to this documentation: Limiting the number of issues returned from a search view such as an RSS feed

Hopefully it helps!

Cheers :)

Thanks very much for this answer, Daryl.

Several, but I sense a deeper requirement here, could you expand on what you're looking for?

By the way - the "several" means that you define a filter to find your issues, then look at it in issue navigator - there are several different "views" with different output formats. But I ask for more information because I suspect you've tried them and not found something close to what you actually need.

Thanks for your explanation. I currently see 50 issues at a time. Is there a way to display all issues at one time? Sometimes it's helpful to see everything, for example, when you want to do a search using your browser's search function.

Not really - if you're trying to get thousands of issues, then you'll be putting unnecessary load on the system and generally searches returning more than a handful of issues aren't actually useful to us humans (it's too much to process).

The "xml" view would include everything, if your browser renders it internally, but it's horrid to read.

It would probably be faster and safer to refine your search.

Hi Jean,

I've gotten around this by Viewing in Excel. The trick here is that there is a 1000 item max limit. You can temporarily get around this:

In "View" right click the Excel option, then copy the URL.

Paste the url into your browser window and edit the variable "?tempMax=1000"

For example:


Could be changed to


Then you can use Exel's search functions to sort through your data.

I'm sure there are more sophisticated ways, but that's what I've done in a pinch.

Just be aware that the limit is there for a reason - this puts a heavy load on Jira and going over the limit can really damage your performance while it runs.
