How to extends 'Printable' view

I need to extend 'Printable' view for single issue by own info (go to single issue -> click 'Export' button -> select 'Printable' in dropdown list).

Found an article, which advices to play with single-issue-view module. But as I understood, this plugin isn't documented see here.

I added single-issue-view element into atlassian-plugin.xml, but it's presented as an additional item in the dropdown list (not original/native Printable item, see

Are you trying to create a new plugin which replace the JIRA default Printable view function?

If not, try the first URL (an article) which suggests that you can edit template files located in
$(Your JIRA installation directory)/atlassian-jira//WEB-INF/classes/templates/plugins/issueviews/
to change the default behavior of Printable view function.


@Shun Hirayanagi I'm developing a new plugin, so unfortunately the approach is not acceptable. Could you please give an advice.

I couldn't find any documentation about how to override the single-issue-view function with a plugin. I suppose disabling "Printable" module of "Issue view plugin" in the "Manage add-ons" menu will hide the printable menu in issue view page. So, you can avoid the duplication of the menu.
