Export all tasks by Epic

All my work is organized by Epic.  I cannot seem to create an export that will group all tasks by Epic.  The export only has the Epic link  next to and I have to manually sort hundreds of items.. there has to be a better way...  Many thanks!

Hello @Paul Baker 

It is possible to export issues and their related epics (including the link between them) to a CSV file in Jira Cloud and Server applications.

For Jira Classic projects (Software or Service desk), these would be the steps:

  1. Click in the filter drop-down at the top of the page > Advanced Search
  2. In the Issue navigator page, type a JQL query to return all the Epics and related issues you want to export. P.S: You can use the "Epic Link" field to select the issues related to a specific Epic

If you want to export specific fields from your issues, including the Epic link:

  1. At the right side of the search bar, select "list view"
  2. Then, add the column "Epic Link" > Click in Export > Select "Export Excel CSV (Current fields)"

If you want to export all fields from your issues, including the Epic link, Click in Export > Select "Export Excel CSV (All fields)".

In both options above, the relation between Epics and child issues will be informed by the "Epic Link" column.

For Next-gen projects (available on Jira Cloud), the same steps above can be followed, however, using the "Parent" field/column to export the Epic relation.

Best regards, Mariana
