How to parse excel spreadsheet from scriptrunner


Hi All,   I am trying to pull data from an excel spreadsheet.   I have found several excel parsers for groovy that are based on apache poi which seem like what I need.

But I am having trouble just loading the libraries,  

I  tried using  grape to get this to resolve.

/*import groovy.grape.Grape
groovy.grape.Grape.grab(group:'org.apache.poi', module:'poi', version:'4.0')
groovy.grape.Grape.grab(group:'org.apache.poi', module:'poi-ooxml', version:'4.0')

@Grab(group='org.apache.poi', module='poi', version='4.0'),
@Grab(group='org.apache.poi', module='poi-ooxml', version='4.0')

import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.*
import org.apache.poi.sssf.usermodel.*

InputStream inp = new FileInputStream("C:\\temp\\testFile.xlsx")
Workbook wb = WorkbookFactory.create(inp);

  Error grabbing Grapes -- [unresolved dependency: org.apache.poi#poi-ooxml;4.0: not found,unresolved dependency: org.apache.poi#poi;4.0: not found] j

Failed, on all saying that org.apache.poi was unresolved.

So I have downloaded the apache.poi jar files version 4.0 and placed the 6 jar files into web-inf/lib folder

Now I removed the grapes code and ran it and I get no errors on the import lines but it says it cannot resolve Workbook.  (Even if I scope it to

I tried doing import and that does fail.

But the documentation for java says that is where it is located.


I am running the above script from the Jira->Add ons->Script Console

Scriptrunner is 5.5.2

Jira 7.5.2


Any Ideas??
