Export issue comments to excel or CSV

Dear All,

is there a plugin for JIRA which enables exporting comments to excel or CSV? Of course we need all details of the issues and the comments too.

Is it such plugin? THere was the „JIRA Export Issues to CSV” but it's still not updated anymore (only had version 1.0) and we have JIRA 5.2.8.

Could you please suggest?

Thanks ina dvance,

JIRA Command Line Interface can be used to create csv file of a list of issues using getIssueList and list of comments using getCommentList. For the later, you will need to use runFromIssueList to get a combined list for a set of issues.

Hello Bob,

thanks for the fast reply.

Hi Bob,

What would be the best way to get the output from both commands in the same csv file?



You would need to write a script to combine the 2 csv files. You would also need to crunch all the comments for an issue into a single field using some sort of unique delimiter. Messy and it would be ugly to view or process by some other script.

Dear @Rumceisz 

With ImpEx you can export your issues to Excel (or HTML) with comments, images or attachments. 

Feel free to give it a try: 

Best regards, Mark


Jira exports comments, link types, and all fields in XML format. It's not too difficult to convert XML to CSV. My company uses a 10,000 user license for Jira Server so buying a plugin for this is way more expensive than using this type of solution. Here's a link to my script, or you can write your own from scratch in another language.
