Hey Rishab,

this would only be possible by editing the underlying template which again is only possible on a hosted instance.
In order to do this, the following resource should give you all the info:

I hope that helps!


Hi Philipp,


How do I replace the <img src="$jiraLogo"  with Image stored at folder $JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/images/slogo1.png ?

i tried <img src="$JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/images/slogo1.png " width="48" height="48" border="0">

But on export excel header. I get this error.

Hey Rishab,

you will probably have to use a variable that is known in the context in which the template (the .vm-file) is rendered; this probably isn't the case for $JIRA_INSTALL.
Depending on if you expect the path of you JIRA installation to ever change, you could simply use the complete path, as for instance (if you use the default paths): 
<img src="/opt/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/images/slogo1.png" width="48" height="48" border="0">


Still no luck.

I have image file on C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\images\slogo1.png

Am i using it correctly?

<img src="/opt/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/images/slogo1.png" width="48" height="48" border="0">

Hey Rishab,

oh, sorry. I thought you were running JIRA on Linux.
In this case the following should work:
<img src="file:///C:/Program Files/Atlassian/JIRA/atlassian-jira/images/slogo1.png" width="48" height="48" border="0"> 
If it doesn't, it could also help to copy the image to the same folder as the searchrequest-excel-header.vm file and just use the img-tag with the relative link:
<img src="slogo1.png" width="48" height="48" border="0">

I hope this helps.
