How to export all issues in an epic including subtasks?

We are about to release a product, and I have been asked to generate a report (ASAP) of all issues belonging to an epic, *including* it's sub-tasks. The Export Full content function in the issue viewer nearly does the trick, but it does not include the sub-tasks.

How can I do this? The epic is big, so finding all sub-tasks in a tedious job.

Hi Svein,

You may use a JQL to search for all the issues you want in the Issue Navigator, as described in the related post below:

Afterwards, you may export the results to Excel by following the steps on the document below:

I hope this helps.



Hi Svein,

The Xporter for JIRA plugin ( is a great solution for you. You can export one or multiple issues in many formats (such as: DOCX, PDF, ODT, SVG or RFT) and you can use sample templates or you can create and define one according to your desired results.

Try it now.

Best Regards,
