Is there a publicly available API class to convert from Wiki Markup to XHTML?

We have an integrated Jira and Confluence setup and use Groovy scripts (using the {script} macro) for a variety of tasks including auto-generation of release notes.

While I can change all the existing code to generate XHTML, the Jira issues have a custom field for release notes text which is in Wiki Markup. I need some way of translating this into XHTML and was looking for an API within Confluence to do so. Is there one?

It turns out that although ConvertWikiToStorage is the right class, it has a monster constructor which for a nnon-API developer is difficult to undestand and use. On asking Atlassian for example code snippets I've been told this is not really possible, so I've resorted to writing my own simple converter using Regular Expressions.

Hi Bahman,

There is indeed a public API available in Confluence for this task, which you can check out in our API documentation: http://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/latest/com/atlassian/confluence/xhtml/api/XhtmlContent.html

I believe the argument you would need to use for this is ConvertWikiToStorage, but this might change depending on your needs so I would suggest that you review the documentation for your needs because there are various options you might want to use depending on your approach.

All the best,
John
