it is possible to export JIRA time duration fields in Days, Hours and Minutes instead of seconds

girish_shenoy Community Leader Jan 13, 2021

This is an open issue since quite long time. I wanted to know if there is a way to export JIRA duration fields to CSV in Days, Hours, minutes format as by default it renders in seconds.

I tried editing duration-columnview.vm and no luck. Version of JIRA is 8.14 Any help is highly appreciated!

PS: I tried workaround on and no luck!

Welcome to the community.  Jira stores duration in seconds and exports it in seconds.  Most individuals I know just divide by number of seconds to convert to the proper format that they would like.  You can also use a plugin like Better Excel Export to accomplish what you would like.  You can use their formulas or functions to do it on the export.

Thank you.

HI @girish_shenoy 

As @Brant Schroeder mentioned, you can definitely achieve this with Better Excel Exporter for Jira.

See this example. Here the values are formatted in hours, but you can format them as minutes or days it that fits your use case better:
