Export Project as Organized

I have a project in JWM with hundreds of epics, tasks, and subtasks.  I have reorganized the order which was set up (initially) by the project participants (by direction of management).

I would like to export all from JIRA into Excel, but I am not able to find a way to export in the order I now have my project set up.  There is ascending or descending by parent, which is a (very) little helpful, but I have moved epics, tasks, and subtasks all over, and none of them are in numeric order.

Is there a way to export my existing structure that I just haven't figured out yet?

Thanks!

Mark

Hi @Mark Trotter 

The native export feature will simply list all the issues but there are fields like Epic Link, Parent Link (Advanced Roadmaps), Parent ID. Not ideal but you can use these fields to reformat your sheet or create some pivots to display hierarchy.

I hope it helps.

Hey, @Mark Trotter.  There are also some Jira apps on the Atlassian Marketplace that provide better exporting capabilities that may help.  (I cannot vouch for them personally for your use case.)  And, there are some advanced hierarchy apps that is some cases can create the board you describe without having to export anything.

Hope this helps,

I appreciate that pointer, Dave.  I will take a look - and any/all recommendations welcome from you or others who may see this.

It's good to be able to restructure a project plan.  However, by default, only being able to export in essentially a numeric order and then having to manually reconstruct the project plan WBS seems like a pretty big oversight to me.

If I can see the order I want right there in the List fully expanded, how is it I can't readily export exactly that?  Again, I fully admit there may be a way I just haven't yet learned.

Interesting...  I took a look at several exporting tools in the Atlassian Marketplace, and I didn't find anything that met my need to export my reorganized project plan in the same order as I have it appearing in the List (Expanded) view.  :sad face:

That's unfortunate. I'm sorry you couldn't find what you needed.
