When I perform an Export from Jira cloud it says there are repeated fields

Hello All!!

 

Hope you have a great day!

Yesterday my partrner whas trying to export issues from jira cloud.  When doing so, it was shown the following:

"Attachment" is repeated 3 times.
"Comment" is repeated 5 times"Components" is repeated 2 times.
"Labels" is repeated 7 times.
"Log Work" is repeated 3 times.
"Outward issue link (Blocks)" is repeated 2 times.
"Sprint" is repeated 9 times.
"Watchers" is repeated 3 times.

Does this mean that the fields in the project where he was exporting issues has all those repeated fields? if so? how can I check it and solve it?

or are them in other projects too?

 

Thanks in advance

Hello @Rosana Casilli ,

Thanks for reaching out, and the Fields that are repeated are fields that are multiselect fields that contain multiple values for one or more issue.  A multi select field type can contain more than one unique option, so the export will split each option into it' own column on export to separate the unique values.

as an Example, you noted that the attachment has 3 columns, this means that at least one issue that was exported has 3 different attachments on it.

Regards,
Earl

Thank you so much Earl!!
