Export Github Issues to XLSX or CSV

Solved! Go to Solution.

I've been trying to export all my Github issues to either Excel or as a CSV file, however, when I try to run the following command from the terminal:

curl -i "{owner}/{repo}/issues" -u dfuentes


I get prompted to authenticate by entering in my password, but then I get the following returned:

Can anyone assist in helping me understand what I'm doing wrong? Or how else can I export my issues into a CSV / Excel file?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Export Github Issues to XLSX or CSV

Hi @dfuentes03,


Thank you for being here! Unfortunately, we don't provide the ability to export issues. This is a request that we have received in the past so I will add your request as a +1. I can't comment on if/when such a feature might be made available, but your request will be seen by the correct team.


As an alternative, you can use our API to programmatically export that data:


The data is provided in JSON format.


We have some information about creating backups here:
