Programmatically export JIRA workflow XML

Hi all,

I am trying to find a way to programmatically export a JIRA workflow to an XML file. I have written an (external) script which transforms the XML into a visualizable form, but as of now it needs a manual action to log into JIRA and export a workflow to XML... Is there any programmatic way to get the XML?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Dmitri

You can use

com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowUtil.convertDescriptorToXML(WorkflowDescriptor)

if you need to do the export from a plugin

or

call the following URL from a script:

/secure/admin/workflows/ViewWorkflowXml.jspa?workflowMode=live&workflowName=Simple+Issue+Tracking+Workflow
