Better PDF Automation for Jira

How can you explain it to your customers?

1. Make a strong first impression


The only PDF automation solution for Jira. It exports, emails and saves PDF documents from Jira periodically or at certain events. Instead of writing scripts, create no-code automations in minutes.

Elevator pitch

Better PDF Automation is a free app for Jira that extends another Midori app, Better PDF Exporter, with automation features. It solves the use cases when you want to create PDF documents automatically, not manually, then email those, save those to files, or attach those to Jira issues.

It doesn't reinvent the wheel by introducing a custom automation framework. Instead, it integrates with Automation for Jira, the Atlassian-owned app which is the most widely used and the most feature-rich automation framework for the Jira platform. That way you can combine PDF document generation with a plethora of other automatic actions.

It is compatible both with the free and the paid/supported versions of Automation for Jira. Using the free one, you can enjoy a 100% free automation solution for relatively simple use cases. Or, you can rely on the supported one, if the use case is more complicated.

In any case, this app will save you lots of time, repetitive work and errors if you create PDF documents from Jira frequently and repeatedly.
