update jira properties in jira-config.properties file (v5.1.8) but not working

I need to increase the following jira (v5.1.8) property from 1000 (default) to 10000, I followed the Atlassian DOC and added the property to jira-config.properties file (under jira HOME dir), then restart jira instance but it didn't work (still restricted to 1000 records), any ideas? This property used to be in jira-application.properties file in jira version 4.3 Thanks


also tried the following and not working as well

Write the below line in your jira-config.properties


The file is plain text, not xml.

Please also be aware that you could easily overload and kill your Jira installation by using this. (No data loss, but you can make it unusable and need to restart it)

Thank you all, it works now and I'll keep an eye on the overload issue. Thanks
