New Feature Announcement
Global Checklists are currently in BETA and will be available in Issue Checklist for Jira ENTERPRISE once released. Contact our support team if you currently use Issue Checklist for Jira PRO would like to participate in the Beta.
If you are using Checklist for Jira ENTERPRISE , note that these methods cannot be used to export Global Checklists as Global Checklists are not saved to the Checklist Text custom field.
Checklist items are automatically stored in the Checklist Text Jira custom field as long as the Save local checklist items to Jira custom fields global setting is enabled. Including this field in any export will ensure checklist data is exported along with the issue.
