Reproducing the Issue

  1. Learning admin >
  2. System Administration >
  3. Configuration >
  4. System Configuration >
  5. Open the Search configuration >
  6. amend the resultMaxRowAllowed parameter value (default is 2000).


  • The default value (2000) is the standard and is considered as the best practice for the "resultMaxRowAllowed" parameter.

  • Note that if a higher value is provided, there are chances of issues like delay in getting the file, timeout issues on the application end, etc., as the data has to be fetched from the database. This is a decision that needs to be carefully taken by the Learning admin taking into consideration all the mentioned aspects.

  • If the parameter is modified, to compare the data of the result, compare it with the Account Data report.

  • Another option is to use the PRD tool to create a custom report for this requirement and use this to fetch the required data from the database. For more information on the PRD tool, check: Using Plateau Report Designer and 2171592 - Process to enable the use of Plateau Report Designer (PRD)
