How to export attachments from JIRA OnDemand and JIRA Cloud

At one of the customers sites we are using JIRA OnDemand (A.K.A JIRA Cloud now) to track our BSM tasks and cost estimates, which we provide for a planned piece of work and these exist in JIRA as Excel files attached to tasks.

As the end of financial year is coming close here in Australia I was asked by my manger to send him these cost estimates for the last financial year. Trying to do it manually one by one from the Web UI for a couple of them made me think that there must be a better way to accomplish that. Google search did bring a few results but they were relevant to on premisses hosted JIRA solution where you had access to the command line.  These didn’t suit me. So after playing around a little I came up with the solution described below. If you have a Linux machine (and a know how) you could probably achieve that in a couple of lines but I only had access to my Windows machine at that time .

Welcome to ISbyR

My greetings to you  – Visitor.

My name is Ilya Reshetnikov and that’s my “Hello World” for this blog/site – we’ll see how it will develop.
The current intention is to use it as my brain dump.
What kind of information will you find here? Various, with strong accent on my main specialite – Enterprise Monitoring.

I’ve been In this field since 2007 and there are a few thoughts I think worth sharing with the World occasional visitor.

I currently work mostly with HP’s BTO toolset: HP BSM/OMi and it’s data collectors (SiteScope, RUM, BPM, Diagnostics and others), HP CMS (including DFM and Configuraion Manger),
Previously I also had a hands-on experience with HP NNM, HP OM (on different platforms), HP QTP,  Cisco Works, PAessler PRTG, Microsoft SCOM and other monitoring/management/test automation solutions.
Probably like any other monitoring specialist, I had interactions with many other IT disciplines and technologies which weren’t part of my main “toolbox”, so you might find some thoughts on these here as well.

I hope I wasn’t wrong and some of my thoughts might actually will be of  use to someone.
