Is it possible to hide a section from the export?

Following your examples I would like to hide the subtasks section if there is no subtask available.

What is the right approach for that?

Hi Florin,

I have found a strange workaround for this. I put the heading *inside* the "for" loop and then put a conditional around the heading section:

&{for issues|filter=%{'${IssueTypeName}'.equals('New Feature') && '${FixVersions}'.equals('4.1.0')}}

#{if (%{${BulkIssueIndex} == 0})}






This is an actual excerpt from a template I use to generate a "road map".

Hope this helps.


Hi Florin,

We are sorry it is not currently possible to hide sections of a document according to the value of a field.

We have that feature in roadmap, but it does not have a scheduled version right now.

Best Regards

Hi Florin,

in my tests I am using a notation like the following together with a filter only on standard issue types (no sub-tasks):

&{for issues}
${Key}    ${Summary}    ${Description} 
#{for subtasks} 
${Subtasks[n].Key}    ${Subtasks[n].Summary}

In the resulting report the subtasks section is empty for all issues without subtasks!

Hope that solves your problem!


Norbert, yes your approach works if you do not use any headings for the subtask information. What I ment is how I actually hide the headings for empty tables.

Thank you!
