    More details

    Better Excel Plugin exports JIRA issues to Excel spreadsheets, for reporting, data analysis and Business Intelligence purposes.


    Unlike JIRA's built-in Excel export feature (which produces HTML files to be imported into Excel), it exports native Excel files in XLSX format. It makes a lot of difference!

    Your data will have real data types. Dates are dates, numbers are numbers, not "everything is just text". You can use data formatting, cell attributes (colors, borders, fonts, etc.), functions, formulas, charts, pivot tables, pivot charts, scripting, and all the other Excel features.

    Create an export file compatible with Microsoft Office, Google Spreadsheets and Open Office for:

    • Created vs. resolved trends by multiple variables
    • Duration and frequency of workflow transitions (SLA)
    • Worklogs by multiple variables (timesheets)
    • Custom reports & KPI's (Key Performance Metrics) between any fields

    Tip: easy automation!

    Really useful add-on especially in the situation when the native Jira Excel export is going to be worse then it was before 7.2.x versions. Cooperation with groovy scripts is awesome and combination of Better Excel plugin and groovy allows you to create any report you may need. Vendor's support is really quick and helpful so we've done several complicated reports in the first few hours after plugin installation.

    A very powerful plugin to extract data out of JIRA into Excel, this combined with the reporting in Excel (charts, pivots tables etc) you can produce some very comprehensive reports. It does have reasonable documentation but this could be improved to make it easier to consume. Their support is very helpful and quick to response to any questions you may have.

    When will it be available for the Cloud as well?

    Thanks for the review, Greg! We will be definitely porting this to the cloud, especially if you vote for the public feature request.

    (At the same time, I'm not sure if this is right to give any vote for the hosted version, if you haven't tried that, being cloud user.)

    Excellent plugin. Very versatile - we've done quite a few things with it. The documentation could be improved, but the support is excellent. They make sure you get to the result you need.

    We're using Better Excel Plugin for JIRA to build high level reports for director and VP level executives from data from three teams. Given the template nature of the solution, we can make impressive transforms in our template and use the plugin to simply load the data from JIRA. Midori support helped us get to successful proof of concept in only a few email exchanges. This plugin is impressive in itself but also impressively supported. Super!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons 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 add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on 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 tier?

    For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications 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 add-ons.

    For versions of JIRA Server prior to 7.0, the add-on tier should match the licensed user tier for JIRA. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your JIRA license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

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

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on 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 add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons 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 add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

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