Jira cli getIssueList returns fewer issues than expected

Hello there..

I expect the below line to return about 2000 issues, but when I run it it returns on 400, it there a way to bump up a limit to say 3000.

./ --server --action getIssueList --columns 'key,reporter,assignee,"Auto Lead"' --search "filter = my_filter" --outputFormat 999 --file "/data/jira-next/jira-cli-4.0.0-SNAPSHOT/jira_other_fields.csv"

There are a number of search configurations you need to check before assigning the blame to CLI.

Does a smaller result set return the desired result? You might want to look at the atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jpm.xml for these few options (or more):


Hope this helps.

The JCLI getIssueList doesn't have a limit (other than your client's java memory setting). It should return all issues that satisfy the filter. There has been a report of a case that JIRA was not returning all the data so a new REST based implementation was added and this did work correctly in that situation. This is documented in JCLI-492. To use the new support use the jql parameter (instead of search) with your direct JQL or using the JQL: filter = "<my filter name>".
