Missing issues card printing function for new JIRA next gen project



How to print cards for current sprint ? we use JIRA Cloud sowftware project with SCRUM "Next-gen project" 


I don't find a way to bulk print cards from current sprint, even in the "backlog views" and I feel dumb to even ask that.

I  actually found a way to print the cards from next gen project.

1. Create a classic project, or use and existing classic project

2. Create a kanban board in the classic project.

3. Set the filter for the board to pull required cards from your next gen project.  

4. Ta da. you will see the print card option in kanban board menu from where you can print the cards from your nextgen project. 

I usually create a kanban board for my daily standups where i pull all the current sprints from various projects that i manage. and create a project wise swimlane. 

This way of printing may not be the best way but it only takes a couple of minutes  create the kanban board and the card print feature is available. Hope this helps

You are a life saver thank you; Shame on Atlassian.

Hi Tristan,

The next-gen projects were designed to be more simple then the classic projects, that's why there are many features missing.
Related to printing cards, we have a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates.


ext-gen projects were designed to be more simple 

Since when priting is considered a complex operation ?

Hi Tristan,

It's not about complexity, as I mentioned there are many features missing and the print is one of it because the projects were designed to be more simple, with fewer functionalities.
I saw that you already added a comment on the feature, now we must wait for our dev team to check the possibilities to implement it in the future.


Saying "there are many features missing" is not an acceptable answer. I removed the status "Accepted answer".

Better PDF Exporter gives printing capability to next gen project by adding a PDF export glance to the new issue view:


It is available in all screens relying on the "new issue view" UI. These already include agile boards, and will include many other (all?) screens soon.

(Printing cards is just one of the many ready-made options and you can customize your own, too.)


It does not answer the question since this plugin does not offer a way to print all the cards sum-up from the current sprint.


I feel your pain, Tristan. :-(

Unfortunately, the current Atlassian Connect version (the integration technology that Jira provides to the external apps) does not allow that. If you have a few cards, then you could do it one by one, but that's not really feasible for larger number of cards.

Please vote on this issue so that Atlassian pays more attention to this limitation:

Actually, you could easily work around this limitation: 

  1. Just a run the JQL which brings the issues in that sprint to Issue Navigator: "sprint = YourSprint"
  2. Then from Issue Navigator, you can create cards for all issues in one go!

Aron, If I follow your sequence, from the Issue Navigator I only see 

- print list
- print details

both of which do not print in card shape. 

@marco.molteni after installing the Better PDF Exporter app, it will add a new button above the Issue Navigator. Click that to open the popup where you can choose the "Story Card" export type.


I have the same problem and I agree it is incredible that this feature is not available. I found a clumsy workaround.

The key idea is to realize that Jira cards are nothing more than cards, they have nothing Jira specific.


Issue a JQL query for the current sprint, for example


project = MYPROJECT AND sprint in openSprints()


Then click on export Excel CSV current fields. Your browser will download a file called JIRA.csv.

From this point on, you can use any software that prints labels, it is a sort of mail merge :-). Load the CSV file, maybe edit the template and print it.

Which software do you use to do your templating and print them on a card-like feel ?

Any software that supports mail merge. I did it with LibreOffice and it was a royal pain. The current macOS Pages doesn't support mail merge any more (it did in the past). I think that Word supports it. I also saw that Avery has some mail merge software but I didn't try it.

Prepare for some pain but at the end it works!

Update for the mail merge workaround I suggest above. I found another app to do this merge, which currently is the less painful approach for me.

I use the open source app.
