Exporting Jira data into Google Sheets

Your Google account must be connected to Jira and the Google Sheets integration must be enabled.

You can export JQL search results to a spreadsheet and save it to a folder in Google Drive that you have edit permissions for.

Exported spreadsheets will be added to the Exported sheets page, where you can view, update, or delete them. See Opening an exported spreadsheet in Google Sheets for more information.
