Is it possible to add html comments in jira via api?

Vincent Fiset Feb 08, 2016

Hi Jira, is it possible to add html comments or at least formatted comments via the JIRA api?

Here is the type of comment I would expect to work.

curl -D- -u user:pass -X POST -d "{\"body\": \"<b>bold</b>\"}" -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://host.com/jira/rest/api/2/issue/XXX-369/comment
