Which module plugin use to export data of an issue?


I want to develop a plugin with the Atlassian SDK to export data of an issue. My goal is to have this data in a file (.txt, .doc, .pdf...) but, if is very difficult, it would be useful to export the data to another web page (like in the Atlassian tutorial of the active objects).

To do this, which module plugin use to export data of an issue?

Hi David,

I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but if your goal is to have a separate page where you'd show data of some issue, you can use either <webwork1> module or <servlet> module.

See these documentation pages: 

You can also use servlet module to output a file of any type, so that going to the servlet's address would result in file download.

Hope this helps!

Hi Igor:

Thank you for your answer.

I have develop a webwork plugin, now I want to develop the servlet plugin, then I can decide which one is the best for my work.

Is there any example (in bitbucket) of a servlet plugin?



Hi Igor:

Big thanks, I'm having an error with the plugin:

atlassian-plugin.xml contains a definition of component-import. This is not allowed when Atlassian-Plugin-Key is set.

On internet they recommend to use this https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/atlassian-spring-scanner/src/49295d62ca5f5b662af25878100083ed19f23269/pom.xml?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default, but I don't know how to use it.
