Is the CM Advanced Search feature limited to 1000 results? If so, is there a way to overcome this?

2 Answers 2


In the [Tridion Home]\solr-home\tridion\conf\solrconfig.xml file, the standard request handler is set to return a maximum of 1000 rows.

  <requestHandler name="standard" class="solr.SearchHandler" default="true">
    <lst name="defaults">
      <str name="echoParams">explicit</str>
      <str name="defType">complex</str>
      <int name="rows">1000</int>

When you specify the Show Results Advanced Search setting, it overrides this with a &rows=XXX querystring setting in the request to Solr (the search tool the the Tridion CME uses under the hood).

If you expect your CME queries to need to return more than 1000 results, the rows setting can be increased.

You may need to restart Solr's application server, or run the Reload command to get changes to take effect.

    I’ve not tried this in Web 8+, I’m afraid. I don’t think that the underlying search architecture has changed much from 2013 though, so I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t work. Dec 19, 2017 at 20:42

I can confirm that this is not the case as I have verified search for 10000 records as well. If you are facing some issue for more than 1000 result, then share the scenario and issue that you are facing.

  • "Showing All 1000 results, sorted by Best Match". That is for an advanced search of components with a "modified" date range. If I shrink the date range, I still get a 1000 results, even if some of the 1st results from the components search were in the part of the date range I truncated.
