How to get rid of "custom field (custom field name)" within the csv export?

So I am currently Setting up a new jira Project for one of our departments.

The want to Export certain issues based on pre-built filters to Excel (which leaves us with "Export to csv (current fields)" which is perfectly fine).


However: Since this Projects relies heavily on custom fields, the Export is littered with column headers like this : "custom field (custom field name)".


Is it possible to have just the custom field Name as a column Header within the csv Export?

Plugins etc. are not an Option, and neither is digging around in the jira Code.


Kind regards,

The only option would be thru post-processing of the CSV. You could simply find and replace all "custom field" w/ "" and the "(" and ")" w/ the same. do this only on the header row.

I was afraid that this would turn out to be the answer.

Personally I wouldn't mind, since most things you import into excel need to  be refined to some degree by the user in a lot of cases.

Thanks for the quick reply though :)

The excel export suddenly appeared again, I'd assume my colleague is responsible for that.

From what I remember you could reactivate it in the "shadow options" or whatever their name was.

So anyway, the problem has been resolved, in mysterious ways, but still.
