  • I am tasked with extracting some data from the jira database to create reports. I have to report issues and their Epic Names. Would anyone be able to tell me how to do this? Thanks Kathy

Don't, if you can avoid it.

A simple JIRA filter for something like "project = xxx" will find your issues.  Then include the Epic Link in the issue navigator output, along with other fields.

Doing this via the database means reading at least 4 tables (and I think it might actually be 6).  It's hard, slow and may change.  There's far easier routes - use them.
