How can I see a list of all Epics and export it?

In JIRA we have a full list of epics where each one relates to a single customer that we provide a service to.


To review the data per customer, we need to relate the data that we have to each individual epic. 


IS there a way that I can extract a full list of Epics held within Jira, and even better, any associated details with them?

For example, one Epic will have a client's name associated to it. If I can extract this and create the table (Manually or automatically) then that would help us a lot!


Kind Regards,

Hello @Connor Jennett ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

This is probably where you want to use JQL (Jira Query Language) to find your Epics.

Go to Filters->Advanced Issue Search

From there, you can select Epics under Issue Type.  Select a project or projects to limit those.

You can choose what information to display by selecting the fields you want in the Columns dropdown

Finally, click on Export, to extract the table into a variety of formats, including CSV.


Hope this helps!

Hey Robert, thank you!


That's perfect, thanks. I'm able to export the list of epics / issue / sub-issues and relate them. I think this'll prove quite useful!


Really appreciate you taking the time to help.


Many thanks again.

Hi All,

If you would be interested in an add-on to view your entire issue hierarchy in a CSV format, you can try out our plugin

Agile Tools : Epic Tree & Time in Status 

The app also provides sum up at each level for time estimates and story points.

Hello Robert, 

is it also possible to export the task together with the connected epic name? Currently the column epic name is empty in the task export. 

What I see is that you can export the tasks and epics together so that they would be in one column. What I want is the description of the task in one column and the epic name in another one. 

Thank you for your help. 

Kind Regards
