I'm trying to pull release notes from JIRA tickets via the Python API and then display them on my company's web site. I am able to retrieve the field containing wiki markup, but am unsure how to convert this to HTML.
I've seen several wiki-to-HTML Python libraries during my Googling, but none seem to be an exact fit for the JIRA wiki markup.
I appreciate any help that is provided!
I read through the REST API documentation and found a reference to expandable properties. This appeared promising, so I read through the JIRA Python code until I found it in the issue constructor. I was able to do the following:
renderedIssue = jira.issue('TEST-17', expand='renderedFields') print renderedIssue.renderedFields.description
In my example above, the description was displayed in HTML rather than the JIRA wiki markup.
Note that I'd tried expanding rendered fields in jira.search_issues -- this is supported in the Python code -- but there appears to be a bug that always returns an empty object in issue.renderedFields (I confirmed this by examining the raw JSON). Thus, I have to retrieve the key from my query results and use jira.issue to retrieve an issue object that has a populated renderedFields object.
I've logged a bug for jira.search_issues at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-30718.
In addition, we're using some of the optional macros, such as the anchor, code, quote, no-format, panel, and color macros. We put a lot of effort into making our release notes look nice. If there's a solution that doesn't only convert the basic wiki markup but the macros too, that would be fantastic.
