I want to grab specific data from an issue and its related subtasks and put them all in a word document. Is there a way to do that? or and add-on? I only see things for getting info from a single issue and or a list.
You can use Xporter for JIRA to export issues data to Word, Excel, PDF, RTF and other types. With this add-on you are able to define what you want to get printed and how data is printed.
The add-on provides 2 workflow post functions:
Also, with this awesome add-on you can set up scheduled reports and send them to a remote file server like FTP, attach them to a Conflunce page and send tehm by e-mail.
All these feature in on add-on.
If an issue exported in this way has sub-tasks, the issue details in the Word document will include a 'Sub-Tasks' section, showing some details of the associated sub-tasks (Key, Summary, Status, etc).
If you want more details about the sub-tasks to show, I can think of three options:
1. Do a search that returns the issue AND it's sub-tasks, and export that. For example, this would get ISSUE-1 and all it's sub-tasks:
key = ISSUE-1 or parent = ISSUE-1 ORDER BY issuetype
2. Check the Markekplace for export related add-ons, that allow more control over your exports to Word (or maybe PDF?).
3. Take a look at this old suggestion about improvements to the Word export functionality in JIRA. It does mention a possible work-around, but it doesn't sound simple:
