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

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

Notes

Summary

Task name


Assignee 

Resource name

  • Makes the assignee's username and workload as the output.

  • If the workload is 0, Microsoft 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.

  • If square brackets are used for the full name of the assignee, convert to parentheses. In Microsoft Project, you cannot use square brackets for resource names.

Uses the value of the field configured as "% done" in WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira

However, in Microsoft Project, the % completion rate of a summary task is automatically calculated including accumulated  % completion of child tasks as well. Therefore the value shown may differ from % done in WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira.
