To replicate in JIRA (Cloud):
1) Navigate to Search issues.
2) Add column "Linked Issues"
3) Search for something (that results in Linked Issues in some of the results)
4) Export to csv with "current fields". The column of "Linked Issues" is not there.
5) Export to HTML report "current fields". The column of "Linked Issues" IS there.
Why does it not appear with CSV?
3 years later and it seems this issue still remains. However, one work around I found was:
Hope that works for you.
Thank you for the workaround. It did at least pull the actual JIRA numbers for me (although they were not links like the key fields). It would be nice if Atlassian would correct the problem though.
It seems that there is a known bug JRACLOUD-68954 : Missing export HTML option. Odd...it says the JIRA was updated in May 2019, but I don't see an update, and it is closed. It almost reads like they have removed the html option (although I still have it). There is a linked issue JRACLOUD-62115 that is open. Maybe you could comment there.
I see the columns for many types of issues linked, but comparing the actual linked issues and the results in the .csv differ. in the HTML all the linked issues appear. The reason i prefer the .csv is that the results where there is a 1:many result in multiple columns... while this can be cumbersome for labels, it's great for issue Keys using lookups.
In the CSV it should have the linked issues but they will be labeled by the link type. For instance I have an issue that has three links associated in the issues search view. When I export using CSV current fields there is no linked issues column. There is however three additional columns with the titles:
The issue numbers are associated with the proper field. Since I have two issues that are linked and blocked it creates two additional columns with the same header name.
Hope this helps.
I'm not sure I understand. Looking at my results, I guess my linked issues must tie to this Issue ID field I see in the excel doc. Here are my results in JIRA:
and here are my csv results:
I was hoping it would give me the linked jiras, and possibly even give them to me as hyperlinks.
Very crude work around.
Step1. export first into excel CSV (current field) where in your exported excel you will not have 'linked issue' column available.
Step2. go back to query modify your columns to have only 'linked issue' column and now export to 'Print List'
Step3. in this 'print list' export you will get only 'linked issue' column (in HTML) copy this single column and paste it as last column in excel sheet which you have got in Step1.
I have Jira v8.4.2 and 'think" I have this same issue with Jira Server. The cause for me is that Inwards links don't get exported. They are only exported in the outward direction of definition. For example, the issues that are blocked don't have an exported issue link. The blocking issues do have that link.
This feature does not work for me at all in ServiceDesk 8.5.1 nor in Jira 8.5.9
The only thing I can get to export is duplicate links, which serves me little purpose. I need to see linked issues to track work with other teams across multiple projects.
Edit: I'm using three different instance of Jira within my company. My issue is specific to not being able to export linked issues when they are across instances (not projects within the same instance; that doesn't seem to be a problem, at least in the 1 instance I tested in).
