Export Jira dashboards to PDF

Jira dashboards and Jira reports are great tools to summarize issue, project and progress information in the Jira web user interface, but they were not designed for exporting and for sharing with external people. The dashboard-fo.vm template exports dashboards, reports and Scrum/Kanban boards to PDF documents which can then be shared, emailed or archived easily.

In addition to the manual actions, you can automate the PDF creation and emailing process, and the periodical reports will arrive to the target mailboxes 100% automatically!

Export samples

Basic Jira dashboard PDF export

One-column, portrait-oriented export of a progress tracking dashboard, featuring the Created vs. Resolved, the Time Since Chart, the Issue Statistics, the Pie Chart and the Filter Results gadgets. You should expect this look using the default settings in the template.


Weekly Jira Service Management report

This company-branded PDF document is combining hand-written content with the visually simplified look of the Average Age Chart, the Time to First Response Chart, the Recently Created Chart, the Resolution Time and the Average Time in Status gadgets (plus others). It is, essentially, a customer-facing PDF dashboard export of Jira-sourced key performance indicators (KPIs).


Jira scrum sprint report

This PDF export example aggregates all sprint related information into a team-focused status report (a single PDF document). In addition to Jira Core gadgets, it also contains the following Jira Software gadgets: Sprint Health, Sprint Burndown and Agile Wallboard. This is a great data source for team status reviews and daily stand-ups.


Jira project status report

This A3 landscape PDF example demonstrates using custom layouts for Jira dashboard exports: four charts give a visual explanation of the project progress in the top. Following these, a Filter Results Gadget highlights issues from the project that are potential risks and need the team's attention quickly.


Jira reports and agile boards

When you need a built-in Jira report, a Jira Software Kanban board or a Jira Software Scrum board exported to PDF (none of these are possible with Jira built-in features!), just export its dashboard gadget equivalent. This particular sample captures an ongoing Scrum sprint's board using the Agile Wallboard Gadget.


Automatic localization for dashboards & reports

Similar to all other types of Jira PDF exports, dashboard exports also use the language selected in the user's profile settings. Note that all content (including gadget titles and charts) is exported in German without any further interaction.
