Background of work : We use JIRA for bug reporting and the count of tickets is very huge. On exporting the file, the size of the file is 50 MB. It takes an hour to download and 40 minutes to open. Simultaneously we work on many such projects.
My question: To reduce time consumed is it possible to filter out only those fields/ data which is required and then export the file. This would reduce file size and also time consumed.
Also please suggest from your end any other method which could be implemented to resolve the above.
Recently had to do something similar, and the suggestion made by @Alex Koxaras worked really well!
It will be limited to 1000 tickets though per export.
You mentioned you had a huge amount of tickets, so if you would need to export more than 1000 issues, you can find the workaround proposed by Atlassian here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/increase-issue-limit-for-excel-exports-in-jira-cloud-779160811.html
Hope this helps too!
Another option that you can try to export your Jira issues selectively from the Issue Navigator to Excel is Better Excel Exporter for Jira Cloud!
The 1000 issue limit can instantly be avoided by using an app like this.
Give it a try and also browse sample Excel exports to understand what can be achieved with Better Excel Exporter!
(Please note that Better Excel Exporter is a paid and supported app and I'm part of the team developing it.)
