Improve Error Handling for Search Request View Module for > 1000 issues

Just wanted to highlight this issue in here as well, since it didn’t seem to get any attention yet.

Currently, if a user tries to “export” more than 1000 issues for an addon using the “Search Request View Module”, they face a “403 error” page and might blame the addon for not functioning correctly.

A temporary fix could be to just change the error message to say that “more than 1000 issues cannot be exported at this time”. This would already help a lot and prevent customer confusion.
