Any way to export a list of users out of JIRA?

I have to send reports weekly of all current users in JIRA. Currently having to highlight and scroll down, copy and then paste into Excel to get a list. With over 300 users, this can be tricky and time consuming. Is there a way that this list can be exported to Excel where it then can be manipulated?

Can't do this in onDemand. In the downloaded version, you could have done this from database.

Jobin - thank you for the quick reply. Had a feeling that was the answer, but wanted to make sure.

Ugly hack: find inactive users in JIRA by processing the HTML from the UserBrowser page.

Browse to the JIRA Users page, select All from Users per Page, add

?max=10000 to the URL and save the HTML only to the local file

user.html then parse it

You can use the REST API to retrieve a list of users. You your favorite scripting language that has a web client interface.

It's bizarre that you can't export a user list from the Administration interface. I have added a request for this, please vote for it:

JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) has the getUserList action that produces a CSV file.

Quick way.  Left click on the UI table, go to web inspector, click the table element, then edit HTML, then copy and paste the table HTML code into excel. It will reformat it into columns/rows of a valid table. Then you can export however you want. 

If you are on server edition then the Active User Filter add-on ( allows you to export users to CSV.

Better Excel Plugin does produce a customizable Excel file from the JIRA user accounts!


(Please note that this is only applicable to JIRA Server at the moment, but we are already working on the JIRA Cloud version.)
