How do I get a list of active components in JIRA and export them?

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?

getComponentList from JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) produces a csv file that can be imported into Excel. Use with runFromProjectList to collect information from multiple projects into a single csv file.

Thank you Bob:)

Hi Jana,

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.


some extent it is ok, but what about if 500+ projects?


Thanks anyway.
