JIRA enables you to easily export your search results from the Issue Navigator to Microsoft Excel. This can be a useful way to format data and create your own customised reports, graphs and charts.

Exporting to Microsoft Excel

  1. On the top navigation bar, click the 'Issues' tab.
  2. Refine your search, as described in 'Searching for Issues', until the required results are displayed in the Issue Navigator.

    Please note:

    • Large exports (e.g. many hundreds of issues) are not recommended.
    • To change the number of issues that are exported, change the value of the tempMax parameter in the URL.
  3. Click the 'Views' menu, and select one of the following:
    • 'Excel (All fields)' — this will create a spreadsheet column for every issue field (excluding comments).
    • 'Excel (Current fields)' — this will create a spreadsheet column for the issue fields that are currently displayed in your Issue Navigator.
  4. A file called '<My company's JIRA> - <My project>.xls' will be created. Edit this file using Microsoft Excel and/or save it as required.

Here is a sample exported file, viewed in Microsoft Excel:
