Exporting Zephyr Tests (just the summary) isn't working

We have Jira server, and Zephyr for Jira.

I'm in the "Search for Issues" screen, with a filtered list of test issues.

I need to export the summary to Excel, but I only get XML code without the actual summary or other field content.

Is this a known issue? How can I export my test issues' summary without having to copy - paste them individually?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Adi

Please navigate to Tests->Search Test Execution and use the export option to CSV where you can export the summary too

Please refer the screenshots in the link below


Let us know if you have any queries about the above mentioned



Unfortunately, I still get an XML file instead of a table in Excel. Is there a pre-existing issue here I don't know about? Also, I don't have a "csv" option in export. Only "Excel (All Fields)" and "Excel (Current Fields)".

Hi Adi

Thanks for clarifying.Can you confirm if you are on Jira 7.X series

If so please check the knowledge base link below

You can export Zephyr data (tests, steps, executions, step results) to native Excel files (xlsx) using the Better Excel Plugin.

For this specific use case, just hide all other colums, but summary, then click the "Current fields (Better Excel)" options in the "Export" drowdown.
