Need to import things from JIRA into Google sheets?

Attach this to a google sheet and then just pass in the filter number.

This should get past both jira's 1000 issue limit and importxml's limit. The only limitation is script runtime which is 5 minutes. Have imported up to 1500 issues with no problem.

function parseXml(searchNumber) {
  var searchURL = 'https://jira.wherever.com/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-xml/' + searchNumber + '/SearchRequest-' + searchNumber + '.xml?tempMax=500&os_username=username&os_password=password';
  var xml = UrlFetchApp.fetch(searchURL).getContentText();
  var document = XmlService.parse(xml);
  
  // get total
  var total = document.getContent(2).getChild("channel").getChild("issue").getAttribute("total").getValue();
  var pages = Math.ceil(total/500);
  
  var sheetData = new Array();
  
  //loop through pages
  for (var i = 0; i < pages; i++)
  {
    var pageURL = searchURL + '&pager/start=' + i * 500;
    var xml = UrlFetchApp.fetch(pageURL).getContentText();
    var document = XmlService.parse(xml);
    var items = document.getContent(2).getChild("channel").getChildren("item");
    
    var xmlElementNames = [
                             "title", 
                             "link",
