Scripted field output contains wiki markup

I have a scripted field to return the last comment from issue: 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()
def comments = commentManager.getComments(issue)
if (comments) {


However, when I search for issues and make the Last Comment visible on the view, the value contains the wiki markup, not pure text (or html), e.g. 

{color} +{color:#333333}*Recovery*+ * *Recovery Plan for TOP Markets


Also when I export the search results to CSV, it contains the markup. 

How can I correct it? 

Thank you, Miro

Hi Miro,

markup format is available on wiki render fields

try to create a new text custom field

change its render to wiki

and update the custom field in listener instead of script fields

good luck !


Works great,  thanks Dar. 

I used to have a regular field updated by listener, as advised in other answer, but if floods the issue history by updates of "Last Comment" field, making it hard to read other history records.

This Adaptavist Library solution describes how to achieve the wiki interpretation while using scripted field: Display Last Comment in Wiki Rendered Styled Custom Field


def rendererManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(RendererManager)
def renderContext = new IssueRenderContext(issue)
def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.commentManager
def comment = commentManager.getLastComment(issue)

if (comment) {
rendererManager.getRenderedContent(AtlassianWikiRenderer.RENDERER_TYPE, comment.body, renderContext)
