Service Desk - Export Issues as CSV via the REST API

Tried to search around a bit for the answer to this and was struggling to find anything.


I'm looking for the best way to export issues from Service Desk as a CSV via the REST API. Tried browsing the API documentation but wasn't seeing anything promising either on this front.


I just want to replicate the export experience that happens via the UI where you're viewing a list of issues and can click the export button in the top right.

If you want to replicate the export experience in Jira UI, you can open the Developer Tools in your browser and have a look what requests are sent to the server.

Thanks for this!! This worked perfectly in my PowerQuery. I needed something that would get all issues in one call, since the Jira paginated API doesn't play nice with PowerBI/PowerQuery.

You could try our Better Excel Plugin to produce Excel files, as it can be completely parametrized via simple URL. One of the parameters accept a JQL which you can use to control which issues to export.

Tip: to see the concrete URL just open the Export dropdown at Issue Navigator and see the links at the menu items added by Better Excel.
