Download all data loaded in Django-serverside Datatable

Hi people, I have this button to download all data stored in DataTable but somehow it only downloads what is shown in the current pagination. So if in Page 1 there's a 10 record and in Page 2 there is 5 records, If I clicked the button while in Page 2 it only downloads 5 records instead of 15 records. Help me out people.

here's my datatable settings:

var dTable = $('#dt_ScannedData').DataTable({
    dom: 'lBfrtip',
    "serverSide": true,
    "ajax": { "url": "/dashboard/SS-ScannedData/" },

    "columns": [
        { "data": "establishment" },
        { "data": "username" },
        { "data": "email" },
        {
            "data": null,
            defaultContent: '',
            render: function (data, type, row) {
                let name = data["firstname"] + " " + data["middlename"] + " " + data["lastname"] + " " + data["suffix"]
                name = name.trim();

                return name;
            }
        },
        { "data": "timein_string" },
    ],
    buttons: [
        {
            extend: 'excelHtml5',
            exportOptions: {
                columns: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
            }
        },
    ],
    "lengthMenu": [[10, 25, 50, 100, 100000000], [10, 25, 50, 100, "All"]],
    order: [[0, 'asc']],
    responsive: true
});

here's the url I used in ajax:

path('SS-ScannedData/', ScanData, name='SS-ScannedData'),

here's my views.py:

@api_view(['GET'])
@permission_classes((permissions.AllowAny,))
def ScanData(request):
    scandata = query_custom_scan_by_args(**request.query_params)
    serializers = TaskSerializerScan(scandata['items'], many=True)
    response = {
            'draw': scandata['draw'],
            'recordsTotal': scandata['total'],
            'recordsFiltered': scandata['total'],
            'data': serializers.data,
       }
    return Response(response)

def query_custom_scan_by_args(**kwargs):
    draw = int(kwargs.get('draw')[0])
    length = int(kwargs.get('length')[0])
    start = int(kwargs.get('start')[0])
    search_value = kwargs.get('search[value]')[0]
    order_column = kwargs.get('order[0][column]')[0]
    order = kwargs.get('order[0][dir]')[0]

    order_column = SCAN_ORDER_COLUMN_CHOICES[order_column]
    if order == 'desc':
        order_column = '-' + order_column

    queryset = ScannedData.objects.all()

    if search_value:
        queryset = queryset.filter(Q(id__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(establishment__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(username__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(email__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(suffix__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(firstname__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(middlename__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(lastname__icontains=search_value) |
                               Q(timein_string__icontains=search_value))

    total = queryset.count()
    count = queryset.count()
    queryset = queryset.order_by(order_column)[start:start + length]
    return {
        'items': queryset,
        'count': count,
        'total': total,
        'draw': draw
    } 

class TaskSerializerScan(serializers.ModelSerializer):
class Meta:
    model = ScannedData
    fields ='__all__'       

SCAN_ORDER_COLUMN_CHOICES = Choices(
    ('0', 'id'),
    ('1', 'establishment'),
    ('2', 'username'),
    ('3', 'email'),
    ('4', 'suffix'),
    ('5', 'firstname'),
    ('6', 'middlename'),
    ('7', 'lastname'),
    ('8', 'timein_string'),
)

SOS!!

    Yep, that's because you've got serverSide enabled - so only the data displayed is available on the client. There are a few threads discussing that may help, see here and here,
