If you have a JQL query that gets you the information you need you could include that in gsheets using the "JIRA Cloud for Sheets" extension.

You could then tie that into Tableau.

I'm not sure how automated it can be made, but this might give you some pointers to get closer to what you want.

I'd suggest creating a filter that returns the issues and fields you need. If you view the filter, you get a URL like:


The number on the end is the ID of your filter.

If you click the export button (top right), one of the links on the dropdown is "Export Excel CSV (current fields)". You can right click on that and copy the link. It will be soemthing like


In theory, hitting the URL you generated will return the latest CSV for your filter. You might need to edit the sharing settings for your filter/project to change how it behaves if you are not logged in. Creating a logged in request from an application is more complex, and I won't cover that here. Once this is working, your spreadsheet tool may provide a way to automatically query this URL.

Note that the format of the URL I used here is not a guaranteed JIRA API. (That is, it might change.)

Another alternative would be to use the JIRA REST API to get the query results from a filter.
