I am exporting the results of a query I created in JIRA where one of the fields is the JIRA (locked) custom field "Epic Link". When viewing the results of the query in JIRA, the "Epic Link" field is rendered as the Name of the Epic (for example: "Fluids Events") but when I export the exact same fields, the value that exports for "Epic Link" is the JIRA ID for that Epic as opposed to the Epic Name (for example: JIRA-101 instead of "Fluids Events"). I need to export the Epic Name as it is rendered in JIRA when I am viewing the results of the query. Adding the column "Epic Name" results in blank values for that column for any story/bug/task that's part of an Epic, so that's not a solution. Help please!
As a 'community leader' @Aron Gombas _Midori_ I am disappointed to see you recommend a paid option. I wish Atlassian had a tighter grip over their forum and would discourage this type of behavior and strip individuals of their ability to respond as posts like this should be infringing community policies - in my opinion. Whether you have a stake in the paid option or find it helpful yourself, a suggestion like yours does not educate folks to understand the situation and the capabilities of the application.
i recently started using the Get Jira Data Excel add into import data from Jira. I have the Jira Cloud version. For having the name of the Epic on report i included the Epic Link.Name field.
Please upvote/accept the answer if you're satisfied with the response. Thanks!
Keep the "EPIC Link" column, but export it as HTML.
Now Import Data from HTML into Excel
Save the file locally and open it with Excel. I get the actual names when I use this approach. You can then save it as a worksheet.
I'm currently on the 'Cloud' or 'On Demand' depending on what you want to call it. So I assume it's the latest version. Are you on the server version?
Not sure about that one. I do remember last year they messed the export options up and everyone screamed. I think the latest version is 7.4. You might want to upgrade
Hi, this is still an issue for me.
From JIRA 7.2.X you can no longer do Excel HTML exports, so you are bound to use csv export, where the Epic Link is displayed as the JIRA ID, as opposed to the Epic Name.
There is a way to force enable the old Excel HTML exports but it will be something that they look forward to deprecate in future releases.
Is there any workaround for showing the name in the csv exports?
