We are deprecating a development tool we use and moving to JIRA. I would like to be able to get a list of active components in JIRA to compare to our dev tools components to make sure JIRA is updated with all that we need. How do I get a list of the active components in JIRA and then export them to excel?
I tried something a bit goofy but it worked surprisingly well for a simple list of components.
I was able to use the heat map gadget to create a list of labels as well.
Updated: Adding, this technique would give only the components actually used in issues (assuming that's what the original question meant by "active", or "in active use").
@Michelle Rau It does indeed work, but the components are not ordered and the formatting means when I paste, it also looks like a heat map retaining formatting, or without formatting all on one line. I have 131 components in one project, some of which have spaces in the title which makes the task of sorting it harder.
There is another easy and economic way of doing the same. you can run below JQL:
component is not EMPTY
Above will result in all the issues which are using the component, post which you can export the issue result in an excel and remove duplicates(data->remove duplicates), by this you will have a list of unique components currently in use.
If you want to list out all the components in JIRA Project, then you can simply navigate to the project->Overview->Components
It will list all the components which you can simply copy and paste in an excel. you will have the entire component list.
Hope this helps.
Appreciate the answer but we too have A LOT of projects which makes it more difficult. But more importantly, I don't just want to see those that are being used, but those that are NOT as well so that we can remove them or question if they are still valid. It does however get me closer than I was when I posted this question:) Thanks for your time.
Another way to access all of the components in a project or projects is to conduct a basic search in issue navigator.
Go to your search bar and type issue navigator and hit return/search - see image below
Once in issue navigator use the basic search and do the following:
Hope this helps!
The query mentioned above pulls a holistic list of components, used or not used on any issue type. If created, it will populate in this list. In fact, if you had a project with no issues and only components, the query will render results, those of which are the components that exist within the project.
Appreciate all the suggestions but those are steps I had done before posting the question and should of stated that so not to waste others time.
I would like to see Atlassian offer an easy way for an administrator to either generate a report or export active components, including those that are not actively used in projects. It's a way for us to 1) identify a holistic component's list, but also archive those not being used. It would also be nice to view or generate a report that lists components and then the project that uses them. This would be helpful when a name of a component needs to change/renamed, it would be an easy way then to quickly identify and go to the project to update the component name there.
