You could do this in a very simple way.
Navigate to Jira Advanced issue search
Select the required Sprint name or Sprint ID and a list of all issues with respect to the sprint you have selected.
Example: Sprint = "Test Sprint 1"
You will probably need to adjust the columns, on what information you want to see from every issue found
Now click on the export icon on right top of the search results screen and select the Export to Excel (CSV) with the current field option of you adjusted the columns in your view, otherwise choose the al fields option.
Now all the issues in the sprint will be download in Excel format.
Unfortunately this method lack some information like issues added/removed after the start of the sprint, adjustments in estimation, etc...
It's a simple option to just show all issue done per sprint.
For 'export', are you referring to 'printing' the Sprint Report OR exporting the data?
1) Printing use Ctrl-P from your browser
May I ask what is the use case for exporting the Sprint Report?
It depends on what the goal or objective you want to communicate to management.
I normally do NOT report to management the team velocity for this is a team level metric.
For my management reporting, they are mainly concerned with the status of a functionality (Epic) so I only report on Epic status... #0f stories open, # resolved, % completed, etc.
At the sprint level, I may indicate the # of stories committed, # actual completed, # incomplete and tell the story on why the team did not meet their committed goals... (ie people on vacation, new team and have not defined their baseline, call out any blockers or areas for improvement, etc.). It really depends on the goal and were you are at in your agile maturity level.
For the teams I am working with, we focus on OKRs and report on the Objective and Key Results (value) vs just the #'s for it starts to shift the mindset to 'feature factory'. The Sprint Report is used in our Team Retrospectives to identify ares of improvement and to promote discussion around how the sprint went. We don't share this with management. They can view it they link but it is not a report out to management.
Totally agree with @Kathi Paquet
If management can't come to the work or even bother to find the data in Jira (not hard), then DO NOT give it to them the sprint report on a platter.
Especially if the team do not look at it (at their retros etc..)
