Reports And Exported Excels are Different.


I am a newbie of JIRA Core. I input real data in my account, than I want to checkout reports. When I created a filtered and grouped custom report from Project Pivot Report section, and exported it as Excel, it does not contain the same content with the web page does. Excel really has no group or filtered. Is it something I do wrong, or something to still process by Atlassian?

By the way, my report on the web page which is grouped and filtered is something for grouping subtasks according to parent issues and summing the subtask times in a certein time period.

If anyone can help I will be appriciated. Thank you for your time...

You'll need to explain the "project pivot report" bit.  What is the filter behind that, and what does it return?  Then, what do we see in excel?

Well, "Project Pivot Report" is one of standart reporting type of the JIRA Core. It returns something like who spend how many times for which issue/sub-task, and when did s/he spend these time in week or month.

It has also some filtering and grouping options. I do want to group sub task according to the parent issue and filtering them for spesific time range. It is successfully done for web interface but when I click the Export Excel option, It dumps excel with no grouping options. Excel contains ungroup time schedule.

I am not sure if it is clear now. I can also add some screenshots if it is still ambiguous.

Nope, it's not. Core doesn't have a project pivot report. I suspect you're using an add-on, but I can't be sure which one, because there's a number that mention pivot reports. Do you mean the Timesheet one that @Ignacio Pulgar suggests?

The addon's name is JIRA Timesheet Report and Gadgets, and can be found here: https://<your-company> Both gadgets are available for free, but there are some other features that require you to buy a license. We use this addon (free version), but had to enable it manually, as it wasn't enabled out of the box.

There's a specific label for tagging issues related to said plugin.

You can find all available documentation here:

If you don't find the answer there, send an email to the developer:

You can define a custom template for the Better Excel Plugin, to bring your data into multi-dimensional Excel pivot tables (and pivot charts like the one below):


There is no built-in JIRA feature for this, and in fact, the built-in Excel export is rather limited.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
