Issues report displays Epic Link, but Epic Name column is blank. How do I export with Epic Name?

There's no way to do this natively.  The Epic name is only stored on the Epic, not the issues inside the Epic, so there's nothing to export!

Some people "fix" this by exporting their epics and doing a lookup formula in their spreadsheet.  Most fix it by not using spreadsheets with obsolete data in them.

This is a BIG BUG in JIRA's reporting format. Its always confusing and gives wrong info. JIRA's reporting / exporting to xl is really a time killing job. Many times when i export to CSV format 'Summary' value shows up under 'Epic Link' while Epic Name is blank in the report. Its very very CORE bug in JIRA and Atlasian probably intentionally kept this bug to sell third party reporting tools.
