CLI(JIRA) getIssueList does not output Comments


I tried to export all issues with the query below but I did not get any comments of the issues. Can you please help?

atlassian.bat jira --action getIssueList --file "C:\outputCLI.csv" --filter=MyFilter" --outputFormat "1" --dateFormat "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss" --encoding "UTF-8"

"getIssueList" does not return comments, only fields. Which fields are returned can be controlled by the "outputFormat":

1 - default, 2 or 4 - custom fields, 3 or 4 - security level, 5 - 4 plus time values, 101 - issue keys only, 998 - all except custom, 999 - all

You can get a list of comments by using "getComments". Example:


atlassian.bat jira --action runFromIssueList --filter="MyFilter" --common "--action getComments --issue @issue@"





I found an issue that seems that it is possible to get comments with getIssueList.


If I use the solution with runFromIssueList and getComments, how can I import a list with all tickets (from csv getIssueList) and combine them with the list of all comments?

getIssueList only supports retrieving the latest comment - see JCLI-480. Wolfgang's answer is correct for retrieving lists of comments.

If you need to combine lists, then you will need to script that. The general case of having many comments for an issue makes it not practical/usable to include in a single csv file.
