Introduced in GitLab 13.6.
Exporting merge requests CSV enables you and your team to export all the data collected from merge requests into a comma-separated values (CSV) file, which stores tabular data in plain text.
To export merge requests to CSV, navigate to your Merge requests from the sidebar of a project and select Export to CSV.
The following table shows what attributes will be present in the CSV.

- Export merge requests to CSV is not available at the Group’s merge request list.
- As the merge request CSV file is sent as an email attachment, the size is limited to 15MB to ensure successful delivery across a range of email providers. If you need to minimize the size of the file, you can narrow the search before export. For example, you can set up exports of open and closed merge requests in separate files.
