Download issues in an excel file from desired issue number


We have around 25000 issues in JIRA and each view page in issue navigator gives 1000 issues.

But say I am on 3rd page, will this start downloading the issues from 3001 issue number.

But it starts the download from issue #1 from in the excel file.

Can we download from the desired issues number starting from issue number say 1 or 2001 or 10001 etc in the issue navigator page ?

Not that I'm aware of - the point of the excel download is that it exports a filter result. There's no pagination in a list of issues. But you're then running into the "only allow 1000 issues as more starts to overload the Jira server" limit.

This really does beg the question - what on earth do you need 25000 issues in a spreadsheet for? I can be pretty sure that there's a much better way to do what you think you need Excel for.

But say for example I have 3000 issues and I am 2nd page say from 1001 to 2000. Then issues doesn't download from 1001 to 2000, they always download from 1 to 1000.

Yes, that's because the download is exporting a filter result. Your filter returns 25k issues, so it's exporting them one at a time. But then you run into the 1000 limit and it stops.

My point is that the download is NOT done in pages (because the filter isn't), so I don't think there's any way to say "download issues from 3000 to 4000" - it's trying to do the whole lot, every time.

Seriously - why are you trying to do this though? If you told us what problem you're trying to solve, we may have a better option than "arbitrarily huge download that probably won't work"
