Is currently in JIRA can do data export to XLS with filter Search for issues?
I remember that once was a possibility but now I do not see this option.
I only see the options:
Export XML
Export RSS
Export WORD
Export HTML
Export CSV

To do so:

  1. Export to HTML
  2. Open Excel
  3. from Excel, click on the Open file option and select that HTML file (data will be shown in spreadsheet)
  4. for convenience, click on Save As and choose XLS format

That broadly works with the CSV export as well - Atlassian have been asked for CSV for years, and are replacing the Excel exports with it, that's why it's gone from Cloud.

Hi Nic. Good point. However, when I open such a csv file with Excel 2013, it doesn't separate columns properly. Not sure if I am doing something wrong.

I doubt it's your fault.  Excel is not great with non-excel formats itself, and the CSV that JIRA currently generates is not quite as "ready for production" as I'd have liked.

Oh, I see. Many thanks smile

Better Excel is the add-on that extends JIRA with this functionality by exporting native and customizable XLSX files.

If you're after JIRA Cloud solution, and don't mind importing CSV into Excel, you could try Advanced Export.

It has ability to customise separators, fields to export, as well as export data which standard JIRA CSV export cannot do.

Please let me know if there any functionalities you'd like to see in the plugin.

It's not free, but very modestly priced.
