Escape issue number in monospaced text

Now and then I have a file named after a issue, e.g. `JIR-123.jpg`. Now when I want to show the path to this file, I monospace the path with {{ and }}:


Unfortunately, Jira automatically links JIR-123 and does not render the monospaced text. I get:

{{path/to<a href="...">JIR-123</a>.jpg}}

Is there a way to prevent Jira from linking the issue?

Escaping the "-" with a "\" helps:

use the {noformat}path/to/JIR-123.jpg{noformat} quotes

This creates a separate code block, which is not - unlike {{ }} - within the line text flow.

You could use single { } to keep in the text, but then the '{' and '}' will still be visible,

for example : some text : {path/to/JIR-123.jpg} and some more text

BTW: why don't you attach the file to the issue and link directly to the file?
