Possible to export issues in charges like 1..100, 101..200, 201..300, etc.?

The URL parameter tempMax=1000 limits the number of downloaded issues even though the query provided more issues than that limit. If the downloaded format is XML, the following node shows the expected result: <issue start="0" end="1000" total="3927"/>.

Is it possible to specify the "start" and "end" attribute as an URL parameter?
Like "...&tempMax=1000&start=1000&end=2000"? This would enable the user to download charges of larger numbers of issues.

JIRA's REST API for the seach has a startAt (https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/latest/#d2e5003) which is what you are looking for.

Hi Timothy, thanks for your answer. And yes, that is the parameter I'm looking for. I didn't play around with the REST API yet, but probably have to, since the parameter seems to be not available as URL parameter like in


Or is it only named differently?

You'll have to look at the underlying servlet for that.
