I was showing our HR department their help desk to be. Given that HR deals with all sorts of legal matters, they would like to download issues to PDF's. When we looked at the export possibilities there were Word (which they don't have, they use Google) or XML. So the only recourse was to print to a PDF from XML.
Is that pretty much it for options? I see an add-on in the marketplace called Better PDF Exporter. I can use a 30-day trial but it estimates that it will cost us $4000/year. I don't think I can sell that to management.
So let me know if there is a built-in PDF exporter that I am overlooking or some other comparable solution. Otherwise we'll just keep doing what we're doing. Thanks
Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!
When it comes to export issues directly to PDF, it would be necessary to use an add-on as you mentioned.
There was a feature request suggesting this, but it was closed as "Won't fix".
There is a workaround they can use to save issues as PDF without an add-on. I was testing here and if we select the option Export > Print details (in case of multiple tickets) or > Print (single ticket), it will open a new tab with a version to print. Using CTRL or Command + P to print, it will be possible to save as a PDF. I tested here in Chrome and Firefox.
Hope this helps!
Yes, that was a fix they were hoping to avoid. I checked out all the PDF apps. Incredibly, all of them estimate it will cost several thousand per year to use. Which, for a PDF exporter, is nothing less than a ripoff. So we'll just keep doing it the way you suggested. Thanks.
