How can I export Work Description?

"Work description" is not a standard Jira phrase - could you explain precisely what you mean by that?

Hi Mark,

I assume you want to extract all of your Work description from all work logged in all issues.

JIRA does not have a feature for that, but you could take it directly from the database with the following query

select worklogbody from worklog

If you want to get the Author name and issue key as well, you may want to join the query with the cwd_user and jiraissue tables as well.

Hope this helps
