      In the exported Excel sheet of a search filter, the custom fields in heading shows 'Custom field (<field name>)'

      How to Replicate

      1. Go to Search Filter
      2. Filter Projects which contains Custom Fields
      3. Export (CSV, All Fields) or (Export (CSV, Current Fields)
      4. 'Custom field (<field name>)' will show on the Custom Field Header

      Expected Result:

      Value on the heading for Custom Fields in the shows the name same as UI

      Actual Result:

      Value on the heading for Custom Fields in the shows the 'Custom field (<field name>)'

      Eg. Custom Field is "Reference"
      In the UI shows "Reference"
      In the Excel shows 'Custom field (Reference)'


      • As a workaroud you can use the Export HTML Report (current field/all fields). You can then edit the name of the file from <filename>.html to <filename>.xls and it should open up in your spreadsheet program. You may run into this bug: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-61891
