Paragraph field default text table support


Hi everyone,

In a Team-managed project we had a paragraph field default text with a table using wiki markup.


With the new Jira issue create experience this is no longer supported and it stopped working.


We tried markdown syntax tables, it doesn't work.

| a | b |

| ----------- | ----------- |



Editor doesn't have support either.

We also tried copying from an existing issue, it looses format.

Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Diogo Ribeiro -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I suspect you are encountering this open defect: 

In my testing for a similar symptom for automation rules, I was able to copy formatting for a table from one smart value field to another issue...but I was unable to directly set the same wiki formatting notation.  There appears to be other content which drives the formatting working.

Kind regards,

Hi @Bill Sheboy, thanks.

Regular markdown formatting works. Table format it doesn't.

I tryed to copy from another table but it loses format on paste.

Hi @Diogo Ribeiro 

Sounds like that field's editor is clearing it out/not saving it.  If you are on a paid Jira license (not free) I recommend asking your site admin to submit a support ticket here to confirm the expected behavior:

After you hear back from them, please post what you learn to benefit the rest of the community.  Thanks!


Atlassian support passed this the team to be fixed 🤞

@Diogo Ribeiro did the support team give you a link to the public defect so we can follow its progress?


The current status of our support request is "Atlassian Investigating".

But I've asked Atlassian to post a link here when they have registered the bug. 

Page mentions wiki format that doesn't work anymore
