Data location of "Print Cards" feature


I want to use the "Print Cards" feature on a Jira board. The standard functionality works for us, so we don´t need a plugin for extended editing.

Does anyone know, how the printable cards are generated? Templates, files on the server?

Maybe it´s possible to change the size of the description.

Hi @Jonas Maier ,

The Print Card feature is controlled by one of the system plugins in the .osgi-plugins directory:


via the 'gh.cardprinting.*' elements, in the various files contained in the JAR file.  And I believe all the pixel size mappings are pulled from the jar file in the file "/includes/css/greenhopper-min.css"

The following Guide gives some details on extracting and repackaging JAR files to make desired modifications:

But modifying the system files does come with a warning, and please do note that this will require an extensive amount of customization to the files and any modifications that you make to these files will be overwritten and need to be re-applied any time you update the application.  Customizations of this nature also fall outside the  Atlassian Support Offerings so any errors introduced by the modifications may not be fixable without rolling back the application to the last known good state.

Make sure to do all testing on a staging server off of production to verify the changes are stable before going live in the production site.
