You can export dashboards or a list of gadgets to PDF using JIRA PDF View Plugin version 3.5.0 or newer.

By modifying the export template (trivial) you can export multiple dashboards identified by their numerical IDs to the same document.See the Customizing what dashboards and gadgets to export section in this page: http://www.midori-global.com/products/jira-pdf-view-plugin/documentation/dashboards

Here is a sample (original PDF):

Hey,

have you searched the forum or at least checked Google ("jira export dashboard"...) before you asked that question?:-)

Its a late reply but I thought it may be helpful for some one..(this try is for chrome only)

Here are few steps I tried in chrome browser.

  1. Make 2 column layout (identical width) in your dashboard
  2. Use chrome and right click on dashboard and click inspect element and make sure inspect element window align vertical to the right hand side of dashboard (This makes your dashboard squeeze)
  3. Again right click and print
  4. In print settings go to more settings and select Landscape mode and tabloid paper and save it as pdf

With these steps, I created a pdf for my needs....but just play around and see it can be helpful. These steps are only for 2 column layout.

 

In Firefox 37, I

  • Maximed the dashboard I wanted
  • Right clicked in it and chose "This Frame" from the context menu.
  • Selected ¨Show only this frame"
  • From menu bar, select "File" then "Save page as..", with setting "Webpage, complete" and a filename.
  • From LibreOffice Calc(which trails Excel) I selected "Insert" then "Sheet from file" and pointed to the filename.

This results in a nice clean import, cleaner than a copy + paste.

 

I also needed to export my dashboard into a PDF. I checked for plugins and gadgets to export from our Jira cloud dashboard but couldn't find anything. Tools exist if you have your own JIRA server but we are using the cloud based version.

I used a Chrome extension called "Full Page Screen Capture" which output our dashboard contents to a png file. I then used GIMP to open the png and export to PDF.

In Chrome, right-click and select 'print...'. Next to 'destination' click 'change' and select 'Save as PDF'. The 'paper size' option will appear. Select 'A2'. Change 'layout' to 'Landscape'. If you're working with a different browser, I don't think the 'Save as PDF' option is available. Select 'Adobe PDF' as the printer instead, then try to change the paper size somehow. I was able to do it in Edge, but I couldn't do it in Internet Explorer because it didn't seem to give me 'A2' as an option (only A3). Changing the scale to 70% or so may also help. Good luck.
