I do a search with a search result > 1000 issues.
From the first page of the search I select to view as Excel by clicking on "Current fields".
I get an excel document with only 1000 issues.
If I start from another page I get the issues starting from that page.
Also in that case I get only a maximum of 1000 issues.
In my previous Jira versions (rel 3.3.3 and 3.5.1), doing an excel export I always got the whole list,
so that is my expectation also for release 3.6.2.
