Why I can't export Epic's fields into the csv?


I'm having trouble with the "export to .csv file" with the fields from the epics. I use the epic as a project and when I export the issues, the fields "epic name", "epic link", etc, don't appear in the .csv file. Do you know why? Is this a bug?

Cheers, Mage

Well in the end, it was my mistake. When I export the excel with all the fields, the field Epic Link is exported. I just didn't know how to use it well.

Thanks for your help!

It seems possible to export the epic link in greenhopper 6.2.2 as they integrate the field to JIRA issue: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/GreenHopper+6.2.2+Release+Notes#GreenHopper6.2.2ReleaseNotes-EpicsintegratedintoJIRA

I just tested and the epic name will be exported under Epic Link field. :)

Thanks for your help, It was helpful for me to realise that I was making a mistake.

Glad to hear that helps :D

Can you please suggest steps to export Epic Link field.



Hi Shradha,

Please use "export all fields" in the filter.This will export "Epic Links" as well.

Thanks Anoop for your response. I will try that. My requiremenmt is to export JIRA Agile board from test JIRA instance to PROD one. We tried it by exporting all fields into .csv file and then importing it. But "Epic Links" were not visible in the "Details" section of Epic.

As far as I know there is more around Agile and ist data and the export/import is not fully supported, especially regarding single projects.
