An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Jira data. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

How to pipe Jira Data to CSV in PowerShell

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access Jira tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for Jira is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with Jira. Below, you will find examples of using our JIRA Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your Jira Data

To connect to JIRA, provide the User and Password. Additionally, provide the Url; for example,

$conn = Connect-JIRA  -User "$User" -Password "$Password" -Url "$Url"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the Issues table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-JIRA -Connection $conn -Table Issues | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myIssuesData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-JIRA into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
