How do escape "}" character?

I'm trying to make the following text as monospace in JIRA

/foo/{bar}

According to the WikiRendererHelpAction page, I should wrap my text in {{}}. Ok so now I have:

{{/foo/{bar}}}

Unfortunately this doesn work. I get

{{/foo

{bar}

}}

So I try escaping the last "}" as "\}".

{{/foo/{bar\}}}

This almost works, all but the last "}" is monospace. I also tried escaping both { and }

{{/foo/\{bar\}}}

But this has the same results - the last "}" is not monospaced. Is there a way to make all of /foo/{bar} monospace, or is this a JIRA bug?

hi Steve

you could try something like this :

{{*/foo/\{bar\}*}}

It seems to only work correctly when there is at least one more character behind the escaped "}".

I would report it as a bug in https://jira.atlassian.com

Best regards,

Peter
