Today we’re releasing Xporter v5.3, a minor release focused on some new features, improvements and bugs that will address some of the needs you have been reporting to us.
With Xporter v5.3, you will find the following new highlights:
- QR Code Function
- PDF/A Format
- Parameters on Xporter for JIRA API
- JSD Internal Comments
- Improved Global Settings
- Create and Export Templates in a new format: TXT
- Export issues in CSV
We also solved some bugs that you have been addressing. Let’s look at some of these features in more detail.
QR Code Function
Until now, we had to use an external service (internet dependent) to get QR Codes printed in your documents. With this new function, users will be able to create QR codes even when JIRA has no internet access.
This version will allow you to export documents in PDF/A format. This format is specialized in long-term preservation of the documents.
Archiving issues can be done by using this awesome feature and exporting all issue data and including its attachments.
Parameters on Xporter for JIRA API
If you use Xporter for JIRA API, you will be happy to know that you can now add parameters on the request and use those parameters in your Templates.
Request: <Base URL>/plugins/servlet/jiraxporter?template=Issue Details with Cover Page&jql=project=DEMO AND issuekey=DEMO-23&outputType=pdf&Title=Document Report
JSD Internal Comments
You will now have the ability to export the comments from JIRA Service Desk, filtered by their Internal or Public value. This is useful to avoid JSD customer seeing internal comments when Xporter is available to JSD customers.
Improved Global Settings
In the Xporter Global Settings, you will be able to enable/disable
- Xporter for JIRA option on the Export Menu (Issue Detail level and Issue Navigator level)
- XLSX (Current Fields) option on the Export Menu (Issue Navigator level).
Create and Export Templates in a new format: TXT
In this version, we are introducing a new file format that you can use both to create and export the text file (TXT).
You can, for example, create a TXT file with HTML content and Xporter syntax inside. This will help you create totally custom HTML pages with JIRA info inside it.
As you can see below there is an example of HTML content with Xporter syntax:
Export issues in CSV
Xporter for JIRA will allow users to export CSV templates. As you know, CSV is simple to implement and parse and it’s processed by many software applications.
Furthermore, it provides a straightforward information schema and it’s smaller in size.
Finally, the expected result will have an output equals to the image posted below:
