The result is not what you expected? The number of returned issues feels too low?

By default, the maximum number of issues that will be returned by the JQL subquery, and thus can be processed by the logical expression is 1000.

To ensure the performance of your entire Jira instance, we limit the execution of the JQL function in terms of issue count and execution time. Please refer to your admin if you need to change the configuration.
