How to add fields to cards printout in rapid boards?

When hitting on printer icon next to the sprint in Plan mode of rabid bord it generates PDF, having task numbers (big bold) and names (small) on it.

Questions:

1. How is it possible to change the formatting when PDF is generated?

2. How to add nother fields there (e.g. time values, remaining or original estimate time)?

3. How to make Jira print subtasks on separate sheets?

Thanks in advance,

Aquarius.

Use the JIRA PDF View Plugin to print custom agile cards.

This plugin renders any sort of customizable PDF documents from JIRA data, using templates. Moreover, it comes with a simple story card template which could be perfect starting point to your further customization.

1. How is it possible to change the formatting when PDF is generated?

Templates are defined using the FO formatting language. You can implement logic using the Velocity or the Groovy language. With this level of configurability, you can implement any document type ranging from custom reports to timesheets.

Read the documention: http://midori.hu/products/jira-pdf-view-plugin/documentation/template-development

2. How to add another fields there (e.g. time values, remaining or original estimate time)?

You can easily add new fields to your template. Again, see the template configuration documentation.

3. How to make Jira print subtasks on separate sheets?

The default template called "issue-fo.vm" has a parameter startIssuesOnNewPages which does exactly this. You can implement the same behaviour to your card template by adding this single attribute to the outermost block:

<fo:block ... page-break-before="always" ... >
