How I can export issues to a text file from OnDemand?

We're writing user stories in JIRA OnDemand and want to export them to a flat text file for execution. If we were using a local instance we could possibly do this through the command line. None of the add-ons that might do this seem to be available for OnDemand either.

Options seem to be :

1. Export as Excel and then re-export somehow to text

2. Export as XML and transform via XSLT

Has anyone had any experience with either?

How feasible is it to make this dynamic (i.e. export all issues on a release via Bamboo)

We've looked at Behave Pro but it doesn't seem to support the ability to run different sets of issues yet. It runs everything marked as "automated" every time you execute.

JIRA Command Line Interface produces a csv file with the getIssueList action.

Thanks Bob - I think I got there marginally ahead of you - I downloaded CLI last night and got it working. Fabulous add-on and it does exactly what I need once I worked out the syntax of "runFromIssueList" method... ta!
