While I do not have a maximum value (I guess what a java int can support), setting a higher value definitely is not good. It can result in JIRA trying to dig out all issues when users try to query with board criteria in Issue Navigator.

Please have a look at the response here on how t set a higher value https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/22733/apache-output-to-excel-limited-to-1000-rows?page=1#23698 . Because of performance issues, it is not advisable to have it set permanaently but you can make use of it only when needed on the fly

As Renjith said, there is no real maximum although I imagine it would

However, I would point out that around 25% of ALL the performance issues I've found with Jira have been traced to people absolutely thrashing the server with requests for more than 1000. I'd leave it at a 1000 and for a heavily used installation, actually think about reducing it.
