How do I increase the 2000 limit in the query builder?

Copper Contributor

I am trying to create a query rule to include computers with a particular executable filename (Software Files.File Name) and get a warning about the information list being truncated to 2000 items.


At time of typing I have not been successful trying to find out how to increase this limit.


Any help would be extremely we

What does you query look like?

Hi Garth,


Thank you very much for your response.


I'm not convinced I explained my issue very well.  I haven't got as far as completing the query, it's in the Criterion Properties I am seeing the 2000 limit I want to extend.


Please see the screenshot attached.

I've used a configuration baseline to get the information (where a particular path is found on a computer) so I have the information I need, but I was hoping to get the computers with said path into a device collection.  It's not essential, but it's also not the first time I've seen this limit and I'd like to increase it for other tasks in the future.


Kind regards,

No. you can't increase that limit.

Not a very useful dialog box! :unamused:


Thank you for the help though, at least I won't waste any further time looking for a way to increase the limit.
