Exporting to MS Project

You can export projects, versions and issues displayed in WBS Gantt-Chart as XML files that are readable in MS Project by clicking DataMS Project export on the operations bar.

The MS Project field for each Jira field is shown in the table below.

Resource name

Makes the assignee's user name and workload  as the output.

If the workload is 0, MS Project specifies the duration of the task as 0 days as a default. Therefore tasks with no milestones and 0% workload are exported with a 1% workload.
