The R4J add-in for Microsoft Excel allows you to work with your JIRA issues in Excel. You can download, modify, create, compare and upload your issue data.
When upgrading from our legacy add-in (before version 3.2.0) you will have to manually uninstall the previous versions since the installers are not compatible. Follow the steps described for Windows 7, Windows 10 and Windows 11 about how to uninstall the program "Office to Jira integration".
Before installing the add-in, all instances of Excel must be closed.
The add-in will add a new ribbon tab, "JIRA", to your Excel interface.
If the new ribbon tab is not visible, please follow these steps.
Before working with your issues, the connection to JIRA must be configured first. To do so, select the option Settings and enter your JIRA URL, username and password. With Save as... you can setup connections to different Jira servers.
If the user select the “Remember Me” option in settings for the instance, the account´s password is stored encrypted on the local computer in the settings file. You can find the settings.json file at the folder
%appdata%\ease solutions\Office to Jira Integration
To easier identify issues in the communication and data quality, the Excel Plugin can create logfile on demand:
Enable "Write Debug Logs" in the instance settings
Get the file "excel-log.txt" from "%appdata%\ease solutions\Office to Jira Integration" folder
"excel-log.txt.*" are older files, up to five files stored.
