How to provide preformatted text for Jira issue? (avoid smart value interpretation)

Jeff Shepherd February 26, 2024

I have an automation that creates a Jira Issue. In the Description I want to have some text that is preformatted. The markdown for this is double braces (e.g. {{monospaced text}} ) but that is also the format for smart values. How do I get the automation to pass the double braces onto the issue description and treat the text as preformatted rather than a smart value? I've tried various escaping techniques (\{{, {\{, {{{{) but they aren't working.
