Installation

You can easily install the Better PDF Exporter for Jira using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) that is built into Jira.

You can install it in two different ways. We highly recommend the first approach for your convenience. You should use the second approach only if the server that hosts your Jira instance has no access to the Atlassian Marketplace, i.e. when direct Jira-server-to-Marketplace-server communication is not possible.

Installing directly from Atlassian Marketplace

  1. Login to Jira as administrator, go to Jira AdministrationAdd-onsFind new add-ons and search for the term "pdf view".
  2. Click Install at the entry of "Better PDF Exporter for Jira" in the search results.
  3. Click Manage add-ons in the left and check whether "Better PDF Exporter for Jira" is visible in the User-installed add-ons list, and whether it is enabled.

Installing by uploading the app JAR

  1. Download the app JAR from its Atlassian Marketplace page. Make sure that you download the app version correctly matching your Jira version.
  2. Login to Jira as administrator, go to Jira AdministrationAdd-onsManage add-ons and click Upload add-on in the right.
  3. Click Browse, select the better-pdf-exporter-for-jira-x.y.z.jar that you just downloaded, and upload it.
  4. Check whether Better PDF Exporter for Jira is visible in the User-installed add-ons list, and whether it is enabled.
