How do you include a markdown link in JIRA Cloud Issue description field using HTTP post

Steven Vits March 12, 2024

When I perform a post action to https://company-prod.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue

I do want to embed HTML hyperlinks in the description of the issue.

Using a simple html tag seems not to work. the entire html code is shown instead of the url.

 

also tried to include markdown notification but still no succes.

Hi @Steven Vits 

Here is an example how to achieve this in the description field.

"description": {
    "version": 1,
    "type": "doc",
    "content": [
        {
            "type": "paragraph",
            "content": [
                {
                    "type": "text",
                    "text": "TEST",
                    "marks": [
                        {
                            "type": "link",
                            "attrs": {
                                "href": "https://google.com"
                            }
                        }
                    ]
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}
