JIRA PDF View Plugin 5.6.0 released: support for view contexts

We are proud to announce that JIRA PDF View Plugin 5.6.0 is available at Atlassian Marketplace!

New in this release

Support for view contexts

Previous PDF View plugin versions used the concept of view types. The multiple issues view type, for example, offered the PDF view for any screen that worked with multiple issues, including Issue Navigator, JIRA Agile backlog or JIRA Service Desk queue among others. From this version, we allow more fine-grained control over which screen in the UI a view should be available in.

Compatibility release for the upcoming Better Excel Plugin 2.2.0

The next release of our Excel exporter JIRA add-on also introduces view contexts. This PDF View Plugin version is also a compatibility release for that.


  • Fixed: Export menus triggered permission errors for anonymous users (typically in the Dashboard menu)
  • Fixed: An "ORDER BY" clause (which makes no sense anyway) in the visibility restricter JQL breaks visibility checking
