    This is a helpful plugin for getting data (in Excel format) out of Jira. Once you learn some basics, you can see the power of what it can do. Support team was responsive to my requests for help.

    Good plugin when it works, but depends on 2 other plugins which have been sold to another vendor meaning problems with the plugin can either be Atlassian-based (jira UPM), Midori (who makes this plugin), or Code barrel (who now does the Automation Lite and Excel Automation). Midori are however very approachable and have fast and good supporters.

    Thanks for the review, Jonas.

    To be precise, the automation feature relies on JIRA (like any JIRA add-on), Better Excel Plugin (developed by Midori), Excel Automation Plugin (developed by Midori, not by Code Barrel!!) and the Automation Lite add-on (developed by Code Barrel). There are important technical reasons why the feature is modularized this way.

    Automation Lite went through a complete overhaul in its version 3.0.0 which lead to some temporary technical issues, that's true. We worked on these with Code Barrel, and within 1 or 2 weeks this setup became stable and production ready.

    If you're on the server version of Jira I really cannot recommend this Plugin more. It's easy to use, smart within Jira and pays for itself. I tried many Plugins for Jira and this is the only one I recommend and saves us so much time and BI resources.

    Very kind support team, especially Ferenc. Extremely expedient service, totally competent and very friendly and supportive. We personally bought 25 licences from them without hesitating - with such a great service and product perfectly suited for our needs, it is a pleasure to continue working with MIdori. I can highly recommend Midori, their services and dev/support team to everyone in the business world!

    Each month & each 2 weeks sprint period we have to generate our invoice attachments with all the worklogs of that period. Before using Better Excel it was a lot of waiting, selecting en collecting all the worklogs from all projects and hoping you don't forget some worklogs and lose money! Then we implemented Better Excel and the selecting and collecting challenge was solved! Only the waiting .... that was hard, waiting 8 minutes for generating a file with 500 worklogs wasn't nice. Also working with Tempo Timesheets, the Better Excel didn't keep the timeframes you selected in Tempo. But we found out that the people from Midori are an excellent help. They found the problem in the generation proces and also limited the worklogs to the Tempo Timeframe we selected. The result : ready in 20 sec! We can really recommend this add-on.

    Thanks, Fabian!

    Happy to hear you find it useful.

    Just FYI the final version of this feature (which we released you in its prototype state) will have improved intelligence. It will optimize the Tempo worklog download times by switching between "single issue" and "bulk issue" modes, choosing whichever is more performant for that specific export.

    by Nick Waters on 2018-02-02
    We keep all of our requirements in an excel document that is our official archive for ISO purposes. We define requirements all at once in excel, import them in to JIRA, and then they live in JIRA for the duration of the development effort. This plugin now allows us to seamlessly export our requirements back to excel. All of our custom fields are produced in just the right order so we can export a copy of our requirements directly for archiving purposes. It saves a lot of time setting up the columns in JIRA for an export with JIRA's built in capabilities. When this plugin is combined with script runner you can generate some really interesting reports as well by doing nested queries. For example, I can produce a report of all of our requirements (epics) that also includes all of our stories or all of our validation test tickets that are in the epic so one can see a very detailed report of how our requirements were validated or see all of the stories that expound upon a top level requirement. Midori provides excellent support and guidance for using this plugin effectively.

    We are in the process of evaluating advanced JIRA Reporting plug-ins and require the ability to report across an Epic's issues as well as the subtasks within those issues. This initially seemed quite complex; however, the support team was able to provide us with a template to test our use case as well as answered our follow up questions efficiently and with quality. We are very pleased with the functionality of the product and especially the support we received - THANK YOU!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. For Jira Server 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (50 users) and Jira Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira Server prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly.Note: While this app has features specific to Jira Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole Jira instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
