I'm actually testing a plugin "Excel Connector for JIRA" from Transition Technologies S.A.
I contacted them and they said that the problem is on my side because they can't reproduce it.
When I export Issues from JIRA 5.1 to Excel, my excel file is automatically in [Read-Only] and [Protected View]. Even if all my settings in the "Excel Trust Center" are set to allow everything it doesn't work. As soon as I sync data between Excel and JIRA my workbook is back to "Protected View".
Is there a way to set JIRA to sent it in full rights mode ??
This is not an existing file. Il's a file generated by JIRA when issues are exported to Excel. Even after saving a file the read only flag is not ON.
To give you more details. Let say I export issues in Excel and unprotect the workbook, as soon as I sync data with the plugin the read only is back on. That's why I'm positive that the solution must come from JIRA and not Excel. Everything as been done on Excel side to avoid that situation.
Can you disable the read-only excel in your environment first befre test in JIRA?
