Newline Characters in Table not handled correctly

I am trying to create a table with one line, as it is to be imported via API to the comments of a test case.


Per documentation, it mentions using \\ as a newline character, but the issue is as follows:

||Header||\\|Cell1,1| gives this after render: 




So instead of formatting the line break as a newline, it is formatted as a cell containing a line break within. 

Can someone help me? The output I am hoping to achieve is 



Cell 1,1

But it must be inputted as a one-line statement since it has to be in JSON format prior to the import - 

In other words, 



Can not be used. Any help would be appreciated, thank you

Hi @Scott Bauer -- welcome the community,

there was a similar question like this some time a go. As far as I remember the solution was to use 


instead off


as newLine character in your payload.


As far as I understood it correctly and my little API skills are sufficient I tried to update a description field of a bug in my system via API and the line break worked.

Hope this was helpful.
