Export Issue Data

YouTrack lets you export data for a list of issues. The following options are available:



Export to CSV

Exports issue data to a CSV file (.csv).

Export to MS Excel

Exports issue data in Microsoft Excel format (.xlsx). Unlike CSV, exports in Excel format preserve data types for values in custom fields and other issue attributes.

These options are available from the rom the Reports drop-down menu on the Issues list.

export data issues list

Use these options to upload issues to another application or use third-party software to compile custom reports.

The maximum number of issues that you can export is determined by the Max Issues to Export setting on the Global Settings page. The default value is 500. If the number of issues that you want to export exceeds the global limit, ask an administrator to increase this value. For more information, see System.

When you select an export option, the list of issues is filtered to match the current search query and context. The export file contains the following details for each issue:



Issue ID

The ID that is assigned to the issue in the project.


The project that the issue belongs to.


A list of tags that are attached to the issue.
