Api/2/search maxResults does not work when set over 100

I am able to search for issues as documented under api/2/search. But when I set the maxResults to a value greater than 100, I am still only getting at most 100 issues. I there a way to return more than 100 issues by making 1 call? Is the 100 limit a configurable value?

REST calls:
[07:10:38] DEBUG Uri: https://intercax.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/search?jql=reporter%3Dalexphung+order+by+created+desc&maxResults=120&fields=*navigable%2Ccomment
[07:10:38] DEBUG RequestLine: GET https://intercax.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/search?jql=reporter%3Dalexphung+order+by+created+desc&maxResults=120&fields=*navigable%2Ccomment HTTP/1.1

I assume it is Jira Cloud?
