Better PDF Automation for Jira Cloud Levente Szabo April 06, 2022 15:46 Follow To automate PDF generation for Jira Cloud. Have more questions? Submit a request 38 Comments Date Votes 0 Zachary Romatoski September 09, 2015 15:47 yes please! 0 Andrea Carl September 09, 2015 16:16 Executives love pdfs, so this would be useful to send pdfs at scheduled intervals. 0 Henry B March 28, 2019 17:50 The automation part would be VERY useful for those of us on Cloud. We have dashboards set up on Jira and Confluence. Having the ability to have the status reports captured as PDF then sent out on a automated schedule would be very helpful. I have been speaking with many BI platforms that do this through the API. 0 Michael Michaelsen April 28, 2019 16:03 We have a request from our users to use the autogenerated JIRA issues of PDF for storing closed issues and tasks. This is important for projects that have been running for long time, and where decisions made are archived in a readable format - also after the project is completed. 0 Enrique Enrique Enrique May 13, 2019 18:40 Is there an eta when this would come out on Beta? My boss mentioned our company wouldn't mind being a Beta partner in this regards. 0 Aron Gombas May 14, 2019 11:37 Enrique, It is the Better PDF Exporter app that is currently in open beta. We don't expect to keep the beta period for a long time. You can expect that the app will be offered with paid and supported subscriptions within some weeks max. About the automation component: there is no public release date yet, sorry. 0 kalai vani July 02, 2019 15:00 Hi When could this automate PDF generation for Jira Cloud will available to use? 0 Levente Szabo July 02, 2019 15:18 Hi Kalai, It's definitely on our roadmap, but there is no public release date yet. Please Follow this feature request (Follow button in the upper part) so you will be notified of every update about its progress. Thanks! Edited by Levente Szabo July 02, 2019 15:18 1 Engin Basarslan July 29, 2019 13:00 Hi All, We we really need jira and better pdf add-on to make a big jira usage at our company. Reporting the status is definietely the biggest part of our process. and we are trying to do that manually Thanks Engin 0 Josh Costella December 04, 2019 16:29 We send a lot of reports to users in the on-prem version of the plugin. After moving to Cloud, we've lost that capability and the alternatives create a poor user experience. We are also looking to automate as much of our release process (notes) as possible. 0 Aron Gombas December 05, 2019 10:40 Important note: I wanted to mention that the pre-requisite for this feature is that Atlassian enables 3rd party (external) actions in their Automation for Jira Cloud and Automation for Jira - Cloud Lite apps. I encourage everyone to ask for that feature at Atlassian. The more request they receive the sooner we can ship the solution on our end. Thanks! 0 Josh Costella December 05, 2019 14:47 Vote here everyone! https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CLOUD-10966 0 Aron Gombas December 07, 2019 10:22 @Josh I did vote, but are you sure that the CLOUD project is the best location for this request? The request is tied to the Automation apps, not to Atlassian Cloud, which is a more general scope - at least in my understanding. 0 Adminjira February 19, 2020 09:18 We work on Cloud, and automatic pdf generation is crucial to us, because we want to create PDFs based on info provided to Jira through a form and then send them to emails also provided through the same form. It is neccessary that this process is automated, because it will process literally thousands of requests, so we really, really need this feature. 0 Pankhuri April 29, 2020 23:22 Yes please! 2 Pat Murphy May 27, 2020 13:22 We have a need for weekly/monthly reporting automation on Jira Cloud, please implement this! 0 Mark Fallaize September 09, 2020 13:27 This would be useful throughout the business. 0 Antonia Graf September 17, 2020 14:58 We have it installed on Jira Server and as part of our Migration to Jira Cloud it would be very helpful to have it there as well. 0 Erwin Fei September 26, 2020 14:28 Yes, please~~ 0 Vincenzo Altimari November 13, 2020 11:55 It would be really helpful to have daily report also with the weekly and monthly ones. Giving a clear view of the project in almost real time is a must 0 Aron Gombas November 14, 2020 12:39 @Vincenzo Can you please elaborate how automation will solve your use case? You want to automate some report and send that every day? 0 Rafael Ramos November 18, 2020 00:18 I'd love to have this feature! 0 Vincenzo Altimari November 18, 2020 09:25 I Aron. In our case we have different project with different people involved also outside of the time which is working on jira. they not require to have a clear view of the boards and gadget but they want reports daily which shows the project sanity and task status. Now as now It's mandatory for us to print the dashboard to pdf (and this was already a great improvement) and send it daily to the different people for the different teams. Having a tool (Automation) capable of printing dashboard and (if possible) report with an auto sending option would decrease the amount of time we spend daily on that kind of activity and letting us be more focused on the core stuff and not the reporting. 0 Aron Gombas November 18, 2020 11:38 @Vincenzo OK, got it, now I understand your use case better. And I agree, this feature would be the perfect solution for that. 0 Jonathan De Bondt December 01, 2020 18:01 Yes, please! 0 Peter Blom December 15, 2020 12:42 We just started a trial period on the PDF tool. Is exactly what we need to generate PDF approvals on work for our customers. But without the automation we won't continue after the trial and have to revert to another setup. This is a must-have for us. EDIT: Oh whow... I see the first request was placed in 2015 without any response from Midori or in-between updates? So likely not something that is going to happen. 😌 Edited by Peter Blom December 15, 2020 12:44 0 Ferenc Nagy December 17, 2020 14:43 @PeterUnfortunately we cannot start working on this until Atlassian enables the third-party integrations in Jira Cloud.Please see Aron's note above at December 05, 2019 18:40. 0 Michel Solecki December 18, 2020 02:50 @Ferenc The links that Aron put in his thread are no longer valid. Are there alternative links so we can vote for the feature? 0 Ferenc Nagy January 08, 2021 01:22 @Michel The links in Aron's comment are invalid becuase the Automation app was integrated into Jira Cloud and no longer available as a separate product. As Josh posted above, please vote and comment on this feature request at Atlassian:https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CLOUD-10966 Edited by Ferenc Nagy January 15, 2021 13:24 0 Aaron Geister January 08, 2021 13:08 As a JiraAdmin to me this ability to set automation is very important. The team were I work is screaming at me to build this automation to pull specific issuetypes when they resolve issues to pdf for tracking. This would be super helpful if this was released. 1 2 › » Please sign in to leave a comment.
