no possible data extration from JIRA

Hello community,

I have a question concerning JIRA - version: Atlassian JIRA Project Management Software (v7.3.7#73018-sha1:17f7a2e).
Since this version, it is no longer possible to extract any data from a board. How can I extract the backlog or the actual Sprint in a file? I have to report the old/new Sprint and for that I fill in several JIRA fields in Excel for the management. I want to show you this with a hardcopy but it isn't possible to add a file.

Thanks for yours answers.

You have two options.

1) Use REST API. 

2) Get data from database via SQL. 

Run a filter that gets the issues you need ("sprint = X" for an active scrum board for example) and use the export options (csv, xml, etc) from the issue navigator.
