How to change the CSV Delimiter

Amaury Blanc Sep 27, 2016


In France we use CSV with semi column delimiter. In Jira, when we use "Export Excel CSV (current fields)" the CSV file generated is a CSV with coma delimiter. 

Is there a setting to change the default delimiter?

PS : we are using JIRA Cloud
