Oracle Secure Enterprise Search - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


From both the SES application and the web service API, Search Query cannot receive more than 200 items in a cluster, even when Top-N is set to a larger value.

In the file "", the following parameters are set :

for ex-

# configure number of hits to request for top-N results

In the web service call, it is configured for 500.

Is there any way to allow TopN to be higher than 200 ?
