We would like to automatically export Jira data/reports in Excel format without cutting & pasting

Below is a post we found, can you confirm that his will work and also if it does work where would we run the code from and what adjustments would we have to make to the code.

How can I schedule/automate Excel reports in Jira

I have a requirement to produce a regular excel report from Jira. I see how I can manually export to excel from a filter and I see how I can schedule a filter to run regularly and email a text report to selected users. Is there a way to automate the filter to generate an excel report daily or weekly?

Something like this should work:

wget -O <friendly_name>.xls --ignore-length=on http://<jira_server>/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-excel-all-fields/<filter_id>/SearchRequest-<filter_id>.xls?tempMax=1000&os_username=<username>&os_password=<password>>

Have also looked at filter subscriptions? If the requirement for people is to get a list of issues, that is the best.

Save writing any code and use the JIRA Automation Plugin together with the Excel Automation Plugin.

This setup will allow you to auto-export Excel spreadsheets without any programming. Plus, the native Excel files created this way are lot more powerful than JIRA's built-in Excel exports: see the comparison.
