Export Structure from Jira to PDF

The Structure Jira app helps project portfolio managers visualize, track and manage projects with an adaptable, user-defined, spreadsheet-like issue hierarchy. Unlike the two-level hierarchy available in Jira out of the box (issues and sub-tasks), Structure can manage hierarchies with arbitrary depth (trees containing issue nodes).

Better PDF Exporter can export structures with all the node details or with certain selected fields to custom PDF documents. It is also possible to easily implement structures in any custom PDF template using some concept of "hierarchical issues".

Export samples

Requirements specification PDF export

Structure is a great tool in Jira to manage technical requirements for any engineering project, while Better PDF Exporter is great to generate professional documentation from those requirements. This PDF example is a Requirements Specification document exported from Jira, compatible with the IEEE/EIA 12207.1-1997 standard. It features hierarchical requirements identified by a sequential index (e.g. 1.2.1), folders for grouping, memos for additional text fragments, plus dependencies and other types of requirement links that enable easily navigation within the document.


Structure portfolio report (program report)

This multi-level activity list gives a centralized overview to the status of the whole project portfolio. It breaks down agile programs to initiatives, to Jira epics, to stories, to tasks and even to sub-tasks. Better PDF Exporter automatically uses the columns you configured for the Structure view, therefore you can add, remove and re-order columns to the PDF final report effortlessly.


Dynamic task list PDF export

Structure's automation features are fully supported by Better PDF Exporter! The dynamic structure exported to this PDF file is a Jira issue set, automatically grouped by sprint (1st level), grouped by assignee (2nd level), and sorted by story points. Note that after the so-called generator items are automatically executed, the resulted issues will be exported.


SAFe test collection PDF export

This PDF file collects the business-facing, technology-facing and regulatory tests for a financial project. It partially builds on the Agile Testing Matrix concept, as guided by the Agile Testing Framework (which itself is part of SAFe, the Scaled Agile Framework). To demonstrate the flexibility of Better PDF Exporter, it seamlessly integrates information from Jira issues, Xray tests and Structure hierarchies to produce the final PDF document.
