In Jira 6.x I used a query that no longer works in 7.n to export to excel

I used this format to export the package:

http://<JIRA SERVER>/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-excel-all-fields/temp/SearchRequest.xls?jqlQuery==filter%20in%20(17459)=<USERNAME>&os_password=<PASSWORD>&tempMax=2500

When run in a DOS command box using Curl, it looks like records are being found, but there is nothing Received or xferd

I also tried "issueviews:searchrequest-csv-all-fields", no difference

Did the syntax change?


Any other clues I can chase?

Starting with Jira 7.2, Atlassian deprecated the Excel export in Jira due to a security issue with the files it created.   There is more detail on this change in the KB JIRA Excel export of issues no longer opens correctly

At the same time, Jira introduced the CSV export option as a means to fill the avoid of removing the excel export option.

That said, if you find that you need the old functionality, that KB does have steps you can follow in order to re-enable the Excel export functions.

You can create native Excel exports with the Better Excel Exporter app, which provides an actual REST API for automation purposes. It can be called from the command line.
