Xporter Addon - Sort Epic Iteration




I've tried everything. I want to export JQL searchresult (Epics & Tasks) to Word in iterations with this schema

> Epic A:

   - Task 1

   - Task 2

> Epic B

  - Task 3

 - Task 4


The problem I have, is, that it randomly sorts, i. e. it looks like that

> Epic A:

- Task 2   

- Task 1


> Epic B

- Task 5  

- Task 2



Currently, my template is this:


&{for issues|filter=%{'${IssueTypeName}'.equals('Epic')}}

1       ${Summary} <--Epic Name -->

#{for n=LinksCount|filter=%{‘${Links[n].LinkType}’.equals(‘is Epic of’)}}

#{for issues|sortby=Summary ASC}

      ${Links[n].Summary} <--issue-->



I've tried all possible variation. What do I wrong?


Could anybody please help me?

Hi @Bernhard Reiter 

The &{for issues} does not allow sorting.

Please use #{for i=JQLIssuesCount|clause=...} ... #{end} where you can write a JQL statement including the order by to sort the information. 

Please check the Xporter Server documentation or the Xporter Cloud documentation (depending on the version you are using).

Any additional questions, please get in touch with Xporter Support; we would gladly assist you.

Thank you.

mmhm.  The problem is the #{for issues|sortby}.  Not the  &{for issues|sortby=..} because

1)  I use it and it works.

2) The documentation says it works.sortby.png

Hi @Bernhard Reiter 

Sorry, my bad, it is possible to use the sortby in the &{for issues} as @Brigitte Bedard pointed out.

In your case, I would suggest using the JQLIssues since it allows more flexibility, however, if you prefer, you may use the sortby in the &{for issues} as well.

Thank you.

you are missing a #{end}, maybe
