How to download a filter in excel file(.xls) using jira commands

Hi, i have tried using below commands to downlaod a created filter in a excel file.

But excel file does not download the data correctly as when we do ""export all" manually.

Using jira commands excel having jumbled data. but my requirement is to downalod it in organized way, same as manual. --action getIssueList --search "filter = 98233" --outputFormat 999 --file "./test.xls" --action getIssueList --jql "project = APPRN AND filter = $filterNum" --outputFormat 998 --file "./test.xls" --action exportData  --jql --action getIssueList --jql "project = SWQB AND filter = 22904" --outputFormat 998 --file "./test.xls"


Thanks in Advance.

Hi @sukhveer jangra,


Please try using the below command, we have used the file as csv file (comma separated values file) which can then be used to be opened in an excel sheet and saved as excel file.


-v --action getIssueList  --file "/Users/getIssueList.csv"  --jql "filter = 'Sample Project Filter'" --server http://<domain-name>/ --user xxxx --password xxxxx "$@"


Please try to use the above command and let us know if you are able to get the output as expected.
