I am using JIRA Server 7.1.6 and when I try to apply wiki formatting to my text, it doesn't apply the style. For example, in the description field, I entered this text:
*This should be bold* -This should be deleted-
And that is exactly how it is displayed instead of bolding or applying strike through.
According to https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/configuring-renderers-802592570.html the default renderer should do this. I don't believe we have modified the default renderer uses, but can't find how to check this in the documentation or a setting that configures this.
Can somebody direct me on how to check our renderer settings?
Hmm. A couple more questions based on that.
I linked to this page in the Atlassian documentation earlier, which should show you how to figure out which renderers are being used. Checking the renderers is for administrators only, so if you don't have administrative access to your JIRA instance, then you will need to get an adminstrator to check/change it for you.
Thanks I was able to find the field configurations/renderers. All text fields are set to use "Default Text Renderer". I don't believe this was ever changed as I am the main administrator of our JIRA instance and I certainly have never done so.
I am able to update which renderer to use which is good.
However, I'm confused as to why the JIRA documentation states that the wiki renderer is default when it doesn't appear to be default and the other renderer actually has "Default" in its name.
