Forcing a Linebreak "\\" --- Issue Comment --- Groovy

JIRA Version 4.4.4 Standalone

I have a postfunction groovy script that creates a Comment within an issue.

The Comment field is configured for Wiki Style Rendering.

I'd like to have a forced linebreak within the comment --- via the groovy script.

The \\ character set produces a \ in the wiki renderer --- via the groovy script.

If I use \\\ character set, it produces an error.

Via groovy, is there an easy way to insert a linebreak for use in a comment using Wiki Style Rendering?

It should be "\\\\". Or use single-quotes then you shouldn't need to escape, ie '\\'.


Thank you, Jamie! Have a good rest of the week.


For line break, I usually use this (just for info, if anoyone else looking for this):

String newLine = System.getProperty("line.separator");


Fair play, but I don't think that's necessary unless you're planning on write a text file that can be read in windows notepad. Browsers and databases seem to treat \n correctly.

Somehow /n doesn't worked for me.

Dear György, thanks so much for this information.

Should be \n, not /n
