Bitbucket renders raw html

Am using the API to post issue comments, but supprised that bitbucket does not parse the html it just renders and posted like the picture below show


Screenshot_2020-01-27 latest-release projectdjangocms issues #3 - Major updates with Teams for Aquariumes — Bitbucket.png

What is wrong?

Here is my api

content = {"content":{"raw":comment, 'html':comment}
return self._post('2.0/repositories/{0}/issues/{1}/comments/'.format(self.ticket.bitbucket.repo_full_name, self.ticket.bitbucket_issue_id),, params=params)

Currently, the API will only accept content.raw when posting a comment. HTML is included in the response.

Doe that mean if I sent <b>this is test</b> when I go to the bitbucket interface I should view the comment as a bold text. For my case it doesn't render as html, instead I get the comment as the original raw html.

No, the API only accepts content.raw when POSTing.

However, if you are using the web interface to add comments and then GET them using the API, you can retrieve an HTML version of the comment.
