2, issue fields inside some special format characters, such as pictures, hyperlinks, red characters, etc.
3, through JIRA.issue_search() how to get these special formats?

Hi @waterghost ,

Welcome to the community!

The description field is stored in an Atlassian-specific format, the Atlassian Doc Format.

The REST API typically does return it formatted just like that, even in JQL queries. However, you may need to explicitly include the fields you want to see, as documented here. In short, add a fields parameter to the endpoint URL and include description.

Hope that helps,
