Hi I am creating a Jira Cloud app (using Atlassian Connect + a JSON descriptor file) and was wondering how to generate and export data to a PDF or Excel file? Similar to the ‘Export’ functionality seen on the Issue Viewer but where I can define the data within the files rather than just exporting issues. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!
On Cloud, it all depends on how you want to to do this. I’m doing export clientside, and for Excel I just generate html file with table and download it with https://github.com/eligrey/FileSaver.js/
Though, I have no personal experience with PDF yet, but have found https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/ some time ago.
Hopefully, there is better way
PDF.js is good and works without Adobe Flash with HTML5 so it can be used in iPad tablets.
