If CSV doesn't work for you, use the Better Excel Plugin to export search results to XLSX files.

Search for the issues you want in it, then use "export to CSV" in the navigator options.  Excel can read CSV files.

Open an existing filter from a dashboard or navigate to the search page. Select the projects and issues that you want to filter. In the top right you will see a drop down option for "Export". Click on that and select the export type. You can export in excel or as CSV in two ways;

  • using current fields (those visible in the filter display) which can be modified by clicking on "Columns" just underneath the export button and selecting the fields that you want to display for each item.
  • or you can export with all fields which will produce an excel file containing the data from all fields in each selected issue's screen.

Hope this helps.

We need a visual step by step with pictures or a video. The words above are almost meaningless. The sentence ' using current fields (those visible in the filter display) which can be modified by clicking on "Columns" just underneath the export button and selecting the fields that you want to display for each item".... Is so cryptic it may as well be written in cuneiform .   The word "Columns" is not present on the interface. The current fields refers to a space on the page somewhere, however the location of that space is dependant on prior knowledge that associates the title 'current fields' with that space. This is because the words 'current fields' does not appear anywhere in the interface.  

Hi Richard,

Thank you for your condescending, ill observed and boneheaded response. Frankly I feel disinclined to help any further but an Atlassian community troll is such a rare and gloriously moronic thing I'll suit up and dive into this choking sea of moldy crap.

Assuming that you were able to decipher my crude and incoherent rock scratchings of the first sentence and made it as far as the search page you would see the following;

Then by clicking on "Export" you will see the elusive and definitely non-existent "Current fields" option.

Hope this helps!
