You can export dashboards or a list of gadgets to PDF using JIRA PDF View Plugin version 3.5.0 or newer.

By modifying the export template (trivial) you can export multiple dashboards identified by their numerical IDs to the same document.See the Customizing what dashboards and gadgets to export section in this page: http://www.midori-global.com/products/jira-pdf-view-plugin/documentation/dashboards

Here is a sample (original PDF):

Does your tool work for JIRA Cloud ? 

(Not yet, but it's going to change!)

Update: Better PDF Exporter is now available for Jira Cloud!

Hi Aron

I see the Better PDF Exporter is now available for JIra Cloud.  However, does it exclude the dashboard templates?

@Kirby_Wanner current Better PDF Exporter for Jira Cloud cannot export dashboards due to major limitations in Atlassian Connect and the Jira REST API. (These are the components developed by Atlassian that we use to implement the exports.)

We plan to implement it later on the go - assuming that Atlassian adds the missing parts on their side.

Please read the full story here and also see this feature as the #1 in the missing feature list. Also remember to vote for feature request!

Hey,

have you searched the forum or at least checked Google ("jira export dashboard"...) before you asked that question?:-)

Its a late reply but I thought it may be helpful for some one..(this try is for chrome only)

Here are few steps I tried in chrome browser.

  1. Make 2 column layout (identical width) in your dashboard
  2. Use chrome and right click on dashboard and click inspect element and make sure inspect element window align vertical to the right hand side of dashboard (This makes your dashboard squeeze)
  3. Again right click and print
  4. In print settings go to more settings and select Landscape mode and tabloid paper and save it as pdf

With these steps, I created a pdf for my needs....but just play around and see it can be helpful. These steps are only for 2 column layout.

 

In Firefox 37, I

  • Maximed the dashboard I wanted
  • Right clicked in it and chose "This Frame" from the context menu.
  • Selected ¨Show only this frame"
  • From menu bar, select "File" then "Save page as..", with setting "Webpage, complete" and a filename.
  • From LibreOffice Calc(which trails Excel) I selected "Insert" then "Sheet from file" and pointed to the filename.

This results in a nice clean import, cleaner than a copy + paste.

 

I also needed to export my dashboard into a PDF. I checked for plugins and gadgets to export from our Jira cloud dashboard but couldn't find anything. Tools exist if you have your own JIRA server but we are using the cloud based version.

I used a Chrome extension called "Full Page Screen Capture" which output our dashboard contents to a png file. I then used GIMP to open the png and export to PDF.

Thanks for your recommendation. It works very well!

In Chrome, right-click and select 'print...'. Next to 'destination' click 'change' and select 'Save as PDF'. The 'paper size' option will appear. Select 'A2'. Change 'layout' to 'Landscape'. If you're working with a different browser, I don't think the 'Save as PDF' option is available. Select 'Adobe PDF' as the printer instead, then try to change the paper size somehow. I was able to do it in Edge, but I couldn't do it in Internet Explorer because it didn't seem to give me 'A2' as an option (only A3). Changing the scale to 70% or so may also help. Good luck.

Thanks for your suggestion. But it does not allows me to print out the full page of the dashboard. 

I've tried two options below, both are working very well.

a) Install Chrome extension free app called "Full Page Screen Capture". It will capture the full page of your dashboard and save it to PDF file. 

b) Open Jira via Firefox (version 76). Right click on the website and select "Take a screenshot".   It allows you to take the screenshot for the entire page or a snapshot of the screen.
