How do I convert HTML into Jira Wiki..?

I will be importing data from an existing ALM tool into Jira and the Description in the ALM tool is stored in HTML. Since I cannot send the HTML via the Jira REST API I want to know if there is a way to Send the REST API HTML or Ask the REST API to convert HTML to the wiki markdown format supported by Jira.


I know you can get the HTML from Jira again as a rendered field, but my need is to move data into Jira but try to keep as much of the formatting as possible.

Thank you. Is there no JIRA REST API Call where the Atlassian Jira solution can take HTML and give me back the correct markdown it needs..?

Seems odd that it would not have this since it does render back HTML as a rendered field when you get items (issues).

I am not aware of such Rest Api

Has this issue been resolved. I am stuck in the same situation. @Alexey Matveev you said you are aware of such Rest API do you mind sharing it?

I am also curious.. I have HTML that I want to convert and post into a Jira Item .. do I have to write my own tag parser?

@Anastasiya Gubina This feels like a mean joke :). I got my hopes up.  That tool appears deleted? All the links are empty and don't go anywhere? Do you have another links, or am I missing something?

@Michael Cowan , I believe this is just an automatically generated documentation by Maven.

This is how our developers included the dependency in the pom.xml file:


There are not so much information about this lib which is bad. However, it does convert HTML to ADF.

Thank you for the follow up .. I will check it out! 

Just checking .. is that the same as this?

@Michael Cowan , yeah looks like the same package.
