Need a way to load all issues in 1 web request, not just 25/50/100
I'm trying to use Excel<-Redmine import feature I described in task #5284.
Another problem I see is that "# of issues per page" parameter is not saved in user settings and also can't be more than 100.
I tried query
but it seems all "per_page" values are ignored except for "25, 50, 100".
As the result, the Excel<-Redmine import can only load and automatically update first 25/50/100 rows while I need to see ALL tasks there.
I know I can export issues from redmine to a CSV file, but this is less convenient for automatic updates for the imported data in Excel.
I understand a heavy query can add some load to the server, but I don't think this is a big issue in my circumstances.

Need a way to load all issues in 1 web request, not just 25/50/100/any_other_finite_number
Could it be possible to add "all" option?
There could be a checkbox to enable that or something like:
Objects per page options: 25, 50, 100, 200, all Multiple values and string "all" allowed (comma separated)
Changing "Objects per page" maximum value is a workaround and doing this whenever someone needs a bigger max-value(issues quantity grows through time) implies that he must contact redmine admin.

I haven't used REST APIs much, but I have yet to stumble across one that didn't paginate… Any particular reason you aren't happy with the paginated results other than "oh god I have to make more than one request that's too complicated :-O"?
you're right, i am just lazy:)
But it is not for REST API, i'm talking about browser view:
for example a manager wants to see some statistics, he configures filters, grouping and columns as he need and.. he can not see results in one place because of limited issues per page.
