I am using Jira and I want to create an RSS feed that is viewable in a browser.
1) How can I create a feed without comments?
2) the xsl stylesheet is referencing a css file that no longer exists. Where can I find it?
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you for responding. I don't know what activity stream you are referring to. Here are the steps I take to create the RSS feed:
1) I go to the project whose tickets I want to export and I choose Export > RSS (Issues).
3) I see this code when I visit the above URL
4) Lastly, I input that URL to an online RSS feed reader, under add subscriptions here: http://reader.feedshow.com/login.php?demo=true&lg=en
I get an error that reads: Error : URL does not seem to be valid...
Am I missing a step or a plugin in order to view the feed? I would like to try what you suggested but I can't even view the feed that Jira generates.
Ahhh, that makes more sense. I assumed you were using an activity stream gadget for some reason :)
You can create a dashboard and add an activity stream gadget in order to see what I showed you in my screenshot. You can customize the feed to your liking and then use the RSS feed on the gadget.
Also, you'll need to authenticate in order to view the feed. This means you should add os_authType=basic to your query string in order to get that RSS feed to work unless your JIRA instance is open to the public. I don't think there are many clients that support this, however.
The biggest problem here is #4 for me. I tried feedshow and feedburner but neither one of those services likes any of the JIRA RSS feeds I plug into it. Just out of curiosity, is an RSS feed absolutely necessary? Will the dashboard approach work instead?
Since the RSS feed is being consumed programmatically, os_authType=basic won't help you -- which is why you're seeing a 401 (unauthorized) status. You'll need to use os_username=XXX and os_password=YYY. I'd suggest creating a user that has read-only access before using that approach.
Awesome news! You're almost there.
Ideally, selecting the "RSS (Issues)" option should do the trick but since it does not, here's the workaround I suggest:
