I have a KQL query used with KeywordQuery that used to work in SP 2010 but no longer works in 2013:
scope="All Sites" AND path:"/sites/" AND path:"/Pages/ThisPage.aspx"
The error that’s given is:
ArgumentOutOfRangeException: The allowed range of values is 0 to 500 Parameter name: RowLimit at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.QueryProperties.ValidateRowLimit(Int32 value) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.QueryProperties.set_RowLimit(Int32 value)
I need to set RowLimit to 1000, but I don’t know why there is a limit of 500. Decompiling the code for Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.QueryProperties, RowLimit is compared against a property called MaxRowLimit which defaults to 10000, so I suppose that value is being set by some other means (I'm not modifying the value from the default)
My decompiler suggests that MaxRowLimit is set in a few ways:
- this.MaxRowLimit = cachedSearchServiceApplicationInfo.MaxRowLimit;
- this.MaxRowLimit = cachedSearchServiceApplicationInfo.DiscoveryMaxRowLimit;
- By setting the Query property
- During internal cloning
I've checked the service application but can't see a way to set a max row limit for that application.
Is this a search service application configuration issue?
Update: I followed this blog post to check the Max setting using powershell and the result was 10000:
