Is Connect querying EVERY bug type work item?

Our Azure DevOps project recently exceeded 20k Bug type work items and now when we try to sync new items from ALM to Azure we get an error that the query call to the Azure API is refused as it would return > 20k work items.

We do have a target criteria set for what should be queried on Azure and that specific query should only return 150 Bug type work items. The only conclusion I can draw is that regardless of what criteria I set that the connector is requesting the list of ALL bug type work items from Azure and not just the query I setup.

Is there a solution here?
