Issues: No Export to CSV option present under actions

Problem to solve

From the current documentation on Gitlab, the exporting to CSV feature should be present under free subscription.

The above image shows the the feature/action is not present.

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

  • What are you seeing, and how does that differ from what you expect to see?
  • Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals


This is a self-managed instance that I am running.


  • 16.9
  • [*] Self-managed

The screenshot looks like a group view, not a project view. Can you check whether the export works in a project view?

For group level exports, see the following discussions

  1. Export Issues to CSV at Group Level (or any level other than project level)
  2. Add "Export" to issues list at a group level (#2704) · Issues · / GitLab · GitLab
