How do I export all stories in an Epic at once?

I have searched for the epic in the "Open Issues" and can see all the stories, however I can't see any option to export all of the stories at once; I need the full story content not just the title

The options available are;

Attach, Create issue in epic, link issue & link page

The is no export option in the "Actions" options either

Likewise when viewing the epic in the backlog, I can't see an option to export all stories

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi @Ian_Kenneth_Court

Are you looking to export to Excel or similar?

It is easiest to do this via the Issue Search page - instructions below:

  • Go to the Issue Search page (On Server, go to Issues > Search for issues - on Cloud, go to Issues and filters > Search issues)
  • For exports, I'd advise moving to column view so you can select which fields you want to export easier - the view button is an option icon with 3 solid lines - click it and ensure you're on "List View"
  • Locate your stories - you can do this in Basic Search by choosing the field "Epic Link" and entering the Epic - or in Advanced search, enter "Epic Link" = ID-123
  • Click Columns and select the fields you want to export - for example, Description as you're looking for the main content of the story. 
  • You can re-order the columns by dragging / dropping them into order - they will export in this order.
  • In the top-right, select Export. In here you'll have a number of options depending on your instance's hosting
  • Press to Export
