You'll need to write a report or issue view for the navigator that will iterate over your search and spit out a line of CSV for each issue and present it to the user

Or, you could take the easier route and don't re-invent the wheel.  Go to the navigator, get the results you want and click "export to excel".  This gives you a generic spreadsheet which all spreadsheet programs can easily "save as CSV".

If you need to automate it, you can actually save the filter you want to use and hit the url (with curl or something) for the download whenever you need it.

hello, 

 

I can do the same in Cloud? you know? Cause I've problems to do in cloud automatically.  

Hi @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] 

What do u mean by writing a report or issue view. Can you please elaborate.

That answer was made nearly 4 years ago, before Atlassian added a CSV export to the issue navigator (replacing the Excel one).  You don't have to do anything now, just use it (although before, you still should just have used Excel and "save as")

At that time, the answer meant what it said.  If you want additional export routes, you need to write reports or views to provide them.  I'm not sure how else to explain it.

You can use getIssueList from JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) to generate a CSV file from a JQL query.

Thanks Bob, seems it works
