REST API not honoring maxResults and '' Edited

Fazila Ashraf Community Champion Apr 11, 2017

In JIRA server V7.3.0, I want to export more than 1000 records using a JIRA REST API call..

I have set the '' as 2000 and the maxResults as 2000. But still it exports only 1000 records.

Is this not a bug? Is pagination on the results the only way?

This widget could not be displayed.

This is not a bug but intentional feature and the limit is set to 1000 by default.

According to this Jira Knowledge Base article:

This is an intentional limitation on JIRA applications to avoid performance-related issues such as an OutOfMemoryException.

If you are Jira admin that can modify config files you can increase the limit by editing file but this is generally not advised.
