How to Export more than 1000 issues to Excel.?


I have tried to export my filtered issues which are around 2600 and encountered with 403 Forbidden error .

Is there any other work around for this. Please help me.

Thanks in Advance...

Your system admins have set the full set of "do not break JIRA by overloading it with the export to excel" protections.  The 403 error means that the property file has been amended and you cannot override it in the UI.

If you read the documentation you've already pointed to, there is a full explanation there.  Your options really are to

  • change the property file (bad idea, it's limited for a good reason)
  • Export a full backup and extract the data you need from the xml
  • Re-analyse your reasons for thinking you need an export and use the internal reporting or an addon

Under Administration / Advanced Settings there is the value:
The upper limit on the number of issues which are returned when performing a stable search. The minimum value is 1000.

If 1000 is minimum, the user should be able to increase it. If not, there must be a bug.

Nope. Sorry.
