Increasing the limit of results returned when you search for issues to link

When opening an issue, you can link it to other issues. The popup for linking Jira Issues limits the search to maximun 10 results.

The user case would be:
1. Open an issue
2. Click More Option.
2.1 Select Link
2.1.1 Popup with title: Select a JIRA issue to link this issue to

Only 10 issues are shown. We checked with firebug the call and we saw that:

http://Myserver/jira/rest/api/2/search?jql=(project%20=%20%22WEB%22)%20and%20key%20!=%20WEB-328&<strong< a="">>maxResults=10&_=1389721864805

So if this value is hardcoded in the call, the only way to changed it without modifying the code is to intercept this call in apache and change the value in the query string. Anybody knows where this value is stored?

Thank you!

Exactly the same issue a have posted here too and i found several other threads here. Obviously nobody from Atlassian is moderating his discussion precisely, because people were complaining about this more than year ago and these thread are still not merged. Anyway I dont understand why there is such a limit and i would prefer Atllassian cancels that limit, instead of some workaround thru the Apache as Teresa proposes.
