Integrating Jira Filters with Excel

Do you regularly download the same Jira filters to Excel to create pivot tables and reports? If you do, you need to know how to use Excel’s built-in ability to retrieve CSV data directly from the Web and how to use it to make updating these reports simple and fast.

For reasons that are not at all clear to me - I can't seem to post the full text of this article on the Community Board. So, if you really want to learn how to create re-usable Excel spreadsheets that can draw their data directly from Jira and be refreshed automatically, follow this link to my other blog area

I hope next week to be able to post another article directly on the Atlassian Community.


really nice article, I'm trying to follow your guide by adapting the instructions for Apple Numbers (the ideal would be for Google Sheets to tell the truth, because I do not use Excel and like me many other people).

Hey Derek, using this for a while now and it works like a dream, however there is one issue I need some help with. First of all to paint the situation. We export issues from a project to reconcile this with information we get from another (external) system. This reconciliation is easy, but the number of issues can reach the 1000 limit, therefore we included a parameter in the JQL based on the creation date.

When importing the data into Excel, one the things that will happen, for instance with the Sprint field, is that in excel it will create multiple columns for all the sprints passed, no issue so far. The challenge occurs when I change parameter of the creation date to a later date, the number of sprint columns will decrease in Excel. And it does not like this and I get an error like:

An error occurred in the ‘SearchRequest-35312’ query. Expression.Error: The column 'Sprint_14' of the table wasn't found

How do I resolved this?
