The answer is in your own question - "create jira-config.properties in JIRA home directory".  I'm not going to try to tell you how to create a file in a directory, I don't know what your OS is, or what text editor you feel like using.

Sorry Nic, My Os is Windows And my question is JIRA upto 7.1 versions there is a file in home directory for "Export Excel" purpose but now it is removed i want create that file in my JIRA 7.3 can you please tell me how to create and where it will be create?

Er, create jira-config.properties in JIRA home directory

I'm not going to try to teach you how to create files.

JIRA Server 7.2 instances

We removed the Excel export option in JIRA 7.2, as we've introduced a more robust, flexible exporter in the CSV export. We hope you find this more beneficial. We do plan on removing this functionality entirely, however in the meantime it can be unlocked with the following steps:

1. Stop JIRA.
2. Locate the jira-config.properties file in the $JIRA_HOME directory. If the file does not exist, please proceed to create it.
3. Open the file and add the below on a separate line:


4. Save this file.
5. Restart JIRA.

***How to fix this file in $JIRA_HOME directory please tell me.


Sorry, what?  Have you tried reading your own posting?
