Hi Patti

To increase maximum amount of exporting issues to excel and the number of issues you can bulk change, you can follow this [article|https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Export+More+Than+1000+Results+to+Excel].

Basically you will have to create/modify the file jira-config.properties inside your <jira-home>, add these lines to your file:

jira.search.views.default.max = 3000

jira.search.views.max.limit = 3000

jira.bulk.edit.limit.issue.count = 3000

and restart your JIRA after that.

Just notice that performing this kind of change, may consume a lot of memory.

Hope it helps,

You can take the url and try changing the "tempmax=X" part of it, but this can be blocked by your Jira admins to prevent you damaging the system.

There's a good reason for the limit - the export is intensive work and can take down your system by overloading it.

Generally, a better question is "why are you doing the export, can you get your report in a safer better way?"

The 'why' is because we need to produce an annual list of changes for our auditors. We will try the URL approach as that seems less risky for general users causing issues. Thanks for your help.
