Exporting only specific fields which are needed

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.

Hi @Amandeep Kaur Virdi and welcome to the community!

You can search from advance issue search for all the issues you want.
Then adjust column visibility, and then click export as a csv (with current fields).

Hope that helps!

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: 


Hope this helps too!


@Kaj Sennelöv you have a point for the 1000 issues limitation! Thank you for pointing out! :)

@Amandeep Kaur Virdi try also the workaround that Kaj provided.
