For the xporter people - what is com.xpandit.jiraxporter.utils.FieldMapper.formatCustomField doing ?

Hi Francis,
I have reported the issue at Xporter service desk( and get it resolved yesterday with new build which he gave it to me .Now i am able to export the documents with the help of xporter plugin.

However , with further communication with xporter developer  i got below response for exporting table grid values.

For further information you can see our documentation here.
The problem is not related with that.
When Xporter tries to get the value from Table Grid custom field, the value is null. So, I think the problem is not on our plugin. I added some logging on version I sent you this morning, as you can see on log file there are messages like this one:
2015-05-05 15:07:19,105 http-bio-8080-exec-21 ERROR amsdev 907x1060x1 hmm9ok 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 /plugins/servlet/jiraxporter [xpandit.jiraxporter.utils.FieldMapper] Unable to get IssueHtmlView from Table Grid or Xray Test Steps.
Could you check this problem with Table Grid support please?
Thank you.


I am using trial version of idalko plugin.It would be great , if idalko supports the exporting custom fields with xporter plugin.Could you please help me on this ?

Can you forward this case to support.tge at ? This will create an issue on our JIRA and an account for you. IssueHtmlView should not return a null. Once fixed we can report back in this channel. Francis

Hi Francis, I am not able to access could you please create issue for me and know the status here . Thanks Sajid

Just forward the case to, which will create an account and raise a ticket.

Hi Francis, Any update on this ?

It is being handled as a support case, we will report back here once issue is fixed.

hi Francis, Any update on this ??

Hmm - your ticket on our system was marked as resolved. Due to some quirck, your reply on our request for feedback went unnoticed It's now back on our radar with an elevated priority Sorry about that, thanks for elevating it. Francis

I have a requirement to export the grid in pdf/doc with custom formatting( I am using xporter plugin) . could you please let me know syntax how can I achieve it with table grid editor and xporter. Please let me know syntax if I have to use groovy scripts which you have mentioned here( ). Regards, Sajid

Nope - this is related to the integration between the two plugins. Apparently the IssueHtmlView is returning null in your case, which it shouldn't. Trying to understand the circumstances when this happens is subject of the support request which we track in our jira. You don't need to use the groovy script approach.

Hi Francis, When Xporter is getting the Issue Html View value from the Table Grid custom field, that value is null.
