How to convert JIRA's wiki markup to HTML?

I used DefaultWysiwygConverter (from to convert HTML to Wiki markup, but didn't manage to do the opposite. I tried following:

DefaultWysiwygConverter converter = new DefaultWysiwygConverter();
RenderContext context = new RenderContext();

String wikiMarkup = ...

String html = converter.convertWikiMarkupToXHtml(context, wikiMarkup);

But this failed, since apparently something called "WikiStyleRenderer" was not defined in DefaultWysiwygConverter.

Any tips on how to get Wiki markup to HTML work?

So long as you have an issue in context (usually the case in JIRA):

JiraRendererPlugin wikiRenderer = fRendererManager.getRendererForType("atlassian-wiki-renderer");
IssueRenderContext renderContext = renderContext = new IssueRenderContext(issueObject);
String html = wikiRenderer.render(wikiMarkup, renderContext);



I have used renderFields.description property to get the HTML Markup.

thanks for your suggestion.

how you have used can you please explain?

2 ways 

you can use the /render api to convert markup to html

 curl -XPOST "/rest/api/1.0/render" -H 'Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8' -d '{"rendererType":"atlassian-wiki-renderer","unrenderedMarkup":"*Hello World*"}'



or you can use 


for eg. if you it is an issue comment 

curl -XGET "/rest/api/3/issue/${issueId}/comment/${commentId}?expand=renderedBody"

will give you html body in the response
