Remove Advanced Formatting Tags From Export

I am using formatting tags in a ticket.  For example,

{panel:title=Issue Detail|titleBGColor=#CCFFCC|bgColor=#FFFFCC}

When exporting, the 'code' is also exported instead of just the real text.  I would like the export to exclude the formatting coding & only show the 'true' text.  I have seen but that is still unresolved after 6 years.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Jira would have to parse and understand content to try to make a decision as to whether chunks of formatting are actually content or not.  It's not a simple thing to do, and Atlassian have it way down the to-do list as it's difficult and most people don't need it.

What they really want to question, but never quite admit, is "why export?".  Exported data is instantly obsolete and usually not particularly useful.   So my question is driven towards "why are you exporting?  What problem are your exports supposed to resolve?"

I am exporting to compile a weekly report to track various measures.  While there may be a better way to produce this within Jira, it's our current process.
