Jira automation insert new line into the audit log

Hi community,

I am looking for a way to insert a new line character into the audit log output for Jira Automation.  This is useful for looping through multiple issues and having a new line for audit log output after each issue.

I have tried \n, %n, \r\n and <br> without success.

Anyone have any ideas or solutions?

Thanks for reaching out.

Unfortunately, it is not going to be possible to add in the line breaks. The audit log is printed out as HTML and new line characters have no effect there. HTML tags aren't allowed (they will be printed as text), this is for security reasons so that embedded scripts and like will not be executed.


Thanks for the response @frother .

Kind of what I expected, based on what I'd tried, but it never hurts to ask the community.

There's always a possibility that someone has come up with a clever/creative way to achieve the same end.

Maybe there's a way that HTML formatting could be allowed in the future (through parsing the string for allowed HTML tags) ..... just a thought.
