Łukasz I'm New Here Jan 06, 2022

after saving i will get something like this:


Is there any other way to put regex in to issue description?

I've just tried adding the regex above in our on-prem Jira DC (8.13.x on psql) and it saved/rendered as expected.



Have you tried saving a more basic version of the regex to see if that works, then expanding to see where the breaking point is?

Hi @Łukasz ,

I tried in Cloud and Server instances and when I saved the regex it didn't change the formatting:

Is this something that you see consistently when creating Jira tickets containing regex expressions? (or maybe I misunderstood)

@Carlos Garcia Navarro @Craig Castle-Mead Thank you for your quick response. 

I found cause of this case. If put dollar character as last, code block does not work, but if i put whitespace character after dollar character like space, pattern is saving correctly.
