Allow jira {panel} and {code} blocks to be collapsible

It would be super-useful, when including long error snippets or other data in a JIRA description or comment, if you could indicate the {panel} or {code} block to be collapsible (like the {expand} macro in Confluence does)

Hi Andrew, 

I agree this functionality would be super useful. I did some digging around in our bug/feature tracker and found a closed request for this functionality. 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-33995

Since it's set as closed I went ahead and created a new request for this functionality. 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-42428

Feel free to watch/vote on this issue for updates smile.

 

Until Atlassian fixes it, you could use this:  https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.topshelfsolution.quicksuggestmacros

It includes an expander macro that could be placed around any content and make it collapsible. (in addition to other macros, like the fancy issue links you see above smile )

Seems like JRASERVER-42428 is also now closed.

Since it's closed, I went ahead and created a new request for this functionality: JRASERVER-65575.

I believe you can go with 

{code:bash|title=Tech details for Admins|collapse=true}

echo Not documented feature \

works better \

than unreleased :)

{code}

Works perfect in Jira 7x with the plugin - https://bitbucket.org/hski/syntaxplugin-public/overview
