integrating Jira with excel

Can JIRA be integrated with Excel spreadsheet?


7 answers


Excel Connector is the plugin which provide integrations between Jira and Excel.
You can find it here:

Related in many complications we decide to rewrite Excel Connector plugin from scratch. Unfortunately, we could not continue to improve the old version because of its design adapted to the old versions of JIRA. The new version will be more stable and faster because we write it on the basis of REST Services.

I honestly recommend wait two weeks for the new version, which will be released on the market early in August.


Better Excel Plugin exports JIRA data to custom Excel spreadsheets. I agree with Nic, you should elaborate what you mean by "integration", but if this is primarily about exports, then make sure to check out this add-on.

This is a huge improvement over the built-in Excel exporting feature, see the comparison.

JExcel is the closest JIRA and Excel can get together.

With JExcel, you can export your JIRA data to Excel and import back to JIRA later.

Like this: export excel.jpg

It is also possible to use Ctrl C + Ctrl V. Refresh it in Excel, and import it back to JIRA the same way. smile

But you can ignore the whole import/export procedure and edit your issues directly in JExcel.
It totally feels like an Excel in JIRA. And Its totally free!

You can download it from the Marketplace:

Hope this helped.

But you need to define what you mean by "integrated".  It's a good word to give us a generic idea that you want two systems to talk to each other, but without the detail of what you want to achieve, you can't get an answer any more detailed than "yes"

You can import data into JIRA from csv files

Likewise you can export result of a JQL query to Excel


Excel Connector only available in the server version, anyone know when it will available for Cloud version?

Hi @Thao Kieu,

Recently we were focused on improving the performance and fixing some old issues with our server version of the app - Excel Connector 3.3.0 was released yesterday :)

Now we are focusing on improvements for version 3.4.0, and after that we will analyze if it's possible and how long would it take to create a Cloud version.

If you like, you could create a request for Cloud version of the app using our Customer Portal



Great news, thank you very much for keeping me posted and continue to enhance Excel Connector.
