Following the example on [https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+Add+Comment], I cannot add a comment contailing a \n newline character. I always receive
POST http://10.28.37.16:8080/rest/api/2/issue/DEMO-12/comment returned a response status of 400 Bad Request
when attempting to add the comment either using the first or secont approach.
Removing newlines from a larger comment makes it significantly illegible - therefore my question - why is that happening?
Many thanks for any suggestions or ideas!
(1) the <br> does not work as it essentially gets excaped,
(2) the \\ (I've seen also \\\\ in one post) does not work either,
(3) escaping the \n by \\\\n (four slashes; in Java) DOES WORK!!!! :)
Many thanks for your insight!
(hope this thread becomes easily googleable for those having the same problem).
Try the following,
check whether your comment's renderer is wiki style renderer, If so try adding '\\' instead '\n', '\\' is used for line break in comments(when wiki style renderer is enabled).
Try this, may work but I dono, and I have not tried,
1) Try using <br> tags, or
2) Try encoding the new line char.
The above two suggestions may or may not work.
Hope this helps.
Teams break work down in order to help simplify complex tasks. This is often done iteratively, with tasks being broken down into smaller tasks and so on until the work is accurately captured in well-...
