Is there a way to export a list of Projects in JIRA?

I know where to view my list of Projects, but is there a way to easily export the list to an Excel/CSV file?

Hi @Caitlin Bell 

You can use the Jira REST api to get the list of projects.


You will then get a json which you can convert to csv by going to

I hope it helps.


Thanks for the information. I really needed it. 

Hi @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ ,

the call brings only the latest projects (not all of them) could you point to call that list all projects

How can we get the most visited Project, most active users, etc in JIRA v6.3.11?

The "latest" in the URI path refers to the API version- it does not filter the projects that are returned. See You could instead use /rest/api/2/project, since "2" is the current version. 

If you aren't seeing all projects it might be because the signed in user does not have the right permissions.

@Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ , thanks for that! Worked like a charm!

Just had to then use something like to convert it to CSV.

Another, simpler way of exporting Jira projects to Excel and creating relevant reports is by using the built-in template and export option of Better Excel Exporter. The options exist for both the Jira Data Center (Server) and Jira Cloud versions.

You can generate an Excel report of Jira projects like this in seconds:



(Please note that Better Excel Exporter is a paid and supported app and I'm part of the team developing it.)

Where does this export to?

Hi @Caitlin Bell 


I'm Leo from DEISER (Solution and Makertplace Partner)

Are you using Jira Data Center? If yes, have you tried Projectrak? 

With Projectrak you can export to excel your projects, also, you can create some script fields like "Date last updates" or "Number of issues", this is an example for "Number of issues":

package deiser.profields.scripts

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.builder.JqlQueryBuilder
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter

// Components
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(SearchService.class)
def jiraAuthenticationContext = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext

// Script variables
def loggedInUser = jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

// Make JQL query
def query = JqlQueryBuilder.newBuilder()

// Returns the issue count
return, query, PagerFilter.unlimitedFilter).results.size()

I hope it helps you!

Try Projectrak:
