I have noticed that in the old JIRA issue screen if I were to manually type up the wiki format for say a header as shown below it will render the Wiki format correctly.
h1. I have manually added this heading
When using the new screen if I create a comment and input the above it will not render it on the front end. When inspecting the UI element there is only a <p> tag with the text. In the old screen when inspecting the element the is a <h1> tag with content.
Did you perhaps input the wikimarkup header "h1." in the comment section while on the new JIRA issue view? If so, the tag won't be rendered on the frontend automaticly as the new viewer doesn't recognise the format:
<p>h1. I have manually added this heading</p>
<h1><a name="Ihavemanuallyaddedthisheading"></a>I have manually added this heading</h1>
Do let me know if this is not the case. Hope you can elaborate on the steps.
As mentioned here New Atlassian Editor, we'll eventually phase out the wiki markup on future editor in favour of universal markdown syntax.
Here's the example formating shortcuts that you can use for the new editor:
Hope this explains.
Hey @Syauqi I just wanted to double check something. You mentioned that Jira will eventually deprecate the "custom" wiki in favour of a universal markdown syntax.
My first question is will this change also apply to Jira server as well as cloud.
Also is there a place to look out for updates on when this will happen along with other development updates?
Thanks for the question Philip, there haven't been any progress for the suggestion nor re-introducing archived markdown Jira labs plugin. If you are interested on the capability, please do keep an eye out and leave a feedback on this active thread for any changes and updates: Markdown for JIRA Add-On compatibility. Though, there's no guarentee that the feature will be implemented or any ETA that I could provide to you.
If you have any other questions, please let us know and we'll be happy to help.
Thanks again for your feedback!
