Learn more about the Open Beta period.

Upgrading from 0.1.0

You need to update one script file. It takes just a minute, follow the guide below.


  1. Upgrade the app JAR as usual, through the Universal Plugin Manager.
  2. Download the ZIP that contains the latest template files:, and extract it.
  3. Login to Jira as administrator, go to Jira settingsAppsPDF Templates (under Better PDF Exporter).
  4. Upgrade the time-by-x-report.groovy template file:
    1. Open the time-by-x-report.groovy template file from the directory where you extracted the ZIP.
    2. If you haven't made any changes in the original time-by-x-report.groovy file, then just copy-paste the content of the new template (the one you just downloaded) to the editor, save it and you are done.
    3. If you made changes to the original time-by-x-report.groovy, you will need to migrate those to the new template. This should be done by comparing the content your current time-by-x-report.groovy file with the new one, and merging all changes you made in the former to the latter. Use a visual merge tool (like WinMerge or Eclipse's compare and merge editor), and it should be trivial.
  5. Enjoy!
