I'm looking to download a list of issues from our JIRA issue list, to process further in VBA and generate a report from the issue list. I want this process to be automated from start to end so e.g. I run a java or VB or C# program, which does a search and download from JIRA (somehow) then runs a VBA program to extract and format the issues into a report. Is there anyway this can be done? I'm using JIRA 3.13.
I've looked at the JIRA and Atlassian plugins but don't quite understand how they work. Aren't plugins meant to be deployed into the JIRA instance. I don't see how plugins can achieve what i want to do
