The Better Excel Exporter and Better PDF Exporter apps already support Jira Data Center deployments (i.e. clustered Jira deployments) since January 2016.
Then, it was the app vendor's sole responsibility to make sure that any app is compatible with the Data Center deployment option by thorough testing and providing reliable technical support to customers. We did that for both apps and also for the free automation apps, Better PDF Automation and Better Excel Automation.
Many of our enterprise customers have been successfully using these in Jira Data Center ever since.
Enter Atlassian Data Center Approved apps
In 2018, Atlassian re-launched its Data Center program and introduced new testing criteria for "Data Center approved apps".
They did this in realization that more and more established enterprises, that use Data Center versions of Jira, Confluence or Bitbucket rely on key apps. These apps also need to live up to the rigorous standards of robustness and scalability these customers require.
We proudly announce that Atlassian reassured our and our customers' experience and deemed Better PDF Exporter and Better Excel Exporter apps, as well as their automation counterparts fully compatible with Jira Data Center.
The Data Center approved apps have a "Data Center" badge right on their Marketplace listing, making it clear that they pass all necessary criteria.

- Better PDF Exporter for Jira 7.0.0
