JIRA 6.1.1 search results PDF export

There's a new "PDF" export button on the JIRA search screen in version 6.1.1.
For us, this functionality produces -

  • a blank PDF on export issues in detail view
  • it works in list view - but a really slow export of even a small list of issues (73 issues took around 10 mins).

I can't find any documentation on this functionality in the JIRA doco. Does anyone have any information on this? or have similar issues?

Hi Folk's

The question of where the mysterious PDF export of search results comes from has been solved !!

It's not core JIRA functionality. It's not the JIRA PDF View Plugin nor the Xporter for JIRA pluging (at least not for us.. we don't have them installed). It is.... wait for it....

JEditor. Yes folk's the plugin that brings you enhanced editing within defined jira fields also provides this functionality. We are currently working out the current nuances of the functionality with the vendor (apparently it's only meant for list view - button is meant to be hidden in detail view) and performance depends on number of fields in the view.

Thankyou for all of your detective work :-)

happy trails



P.S. Thankyou to Daryl and Ferenc

Sure. I hope your problems get fixed soon.

If you decided to try the PDF View Plugin, it can export both single issues and search results. It has no performance problems with hundreds issues and hundres of fields.

Hi Kai

Currently JIRA doesn't support export issue search results into PDF format, I am suspecting you could be using the following third-party plugin that contains this feature:

You might want to check with the plugin vendor regarding on your current issue.
