How to add a table in JIRA Issue description part ?

I want to add tables in my issue description part .

I know use

||heading 1||heading 2||heading 3||
|col A1|col A2|col A3|
|col B1|col B2|col B3|

to add.

However it is tedious to users .

Is there any tools to allow users paste table in the description part?

Looking forward to your reply!

Hm, isn't there a simpler solution than adding a plugin for every little feature? With a bunch of plugins for this and that it's not only getting costly, it's also geting complex to maintain.

Completely agree, table editor feature should really be standard these days

You can try Table Grid Editor plugin. This is much more flexible than just a table structure inside an issue description. You can prepopulate data for a table, use different column types, make any type of formula calculations, use aggregation functions for columns. It's fully compatible with JQL search as well. For server version, it's also possible to configure database connections and use data from your own DB inside your table. And much more... Just check this out

I agree with @Ralf Becker . A table editor is a basic feature that is pretty much expected these days.  Especially on a polished product I am paying for.

Copy a written table from Confluence to the Jira ticket.

I found one hack, Instead of adding table while creating story, you should create story with basic description and once story created you can edit description and copy paste table into description part easily.

thank-you for this hack - works brillantly
