Traditionally, CSV templates take the form of a text file containing information separated by commas.

Check out a CSV Template example in the Template Store.


Xporter for Jira supports CSV templates

You can export CSV templates. As you know, CSV is smaller and simpler to implement and parse. It's processed by many software applications. Furthermore, it provides a straightforward information schema.


CSV extension files can be used on every action of the Xporter for Jira .

  • Single Issue
  • Multiple Issue
  • Schedule Reports
  • Post functions

To create CSV templates, add mappings the same way you do with Excel templates.

After creating the desired template, save with a csv extension. You'll get a corresponding csv report:


Sometimes, you may want to export multiple issues, without reproducing some sections of the template. This can be useful if you want to export multiple issues, and place the issues of a specific issue type (e.g., Story) in a section of the template.

As you can see above, ${Summary}, ${Key} and ${Status} are mappings used on Word templates. However, Xporter for Jira allows you to export current fields defined on your Jira instance.

Below is an example of the expected result:
