If your back-end is MySQL, you could request a read-only account and connect via ODBC.

You can export JIRA search queries to Excel in regular intervals with the Excel Automation Plugin

Technically speaking, it is not real-time, but you can flexibily define the frequency of the exports. You can go down to seconds, and have a XLSX file be written to your filesystem in every 5 seconds, for instance.

Aditya,

What are you trying to achieve with MS Excel that you likely can't already with JIRA? In our shop we've had an ongoing campaign to STOMP OUT discrete and static documents. With well crafted views using widgets and various queries coupled with using Confluence to display JIRA along with other relevant data, we really don't need it much any longer and things run much smoother and more removed from "management by inbox" than ever before.

Lemme know.. maybe I can help you find another way around your problem.
