Is there a way to create an issue with markdown like jira native text fomatting?

Hi,

I have noticed while creating an issue on Jira Cloud, the description can be formatted using a markdown like text formatting similar to the one I've added down at the description. I have been looking into the api documentation and I didn't find anything relevant. So, I'd be glad to know if jira cloud api can pass in markdown like text formatting as a parameter in order to create jira tickets.

Thanks

It was possible with the old view, the new view doesn't allow it.

New view markdown: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/markdown-and-keyboard-shortcuts/

The editor in the new issue view uses markdown rather than wiki markup. Right now, if you've added wiki markup in the old editor, we'll render it correctly in the new issue view. As we continue to roll out the new issue view and new editor, wiki markup support will be phased out and eventually removed in favor of markdown.
