Jira Text Formatting to HTML - JavaScript Parser Edited

Dear Community, 

 

is anyone there who knows a javascript parser, which parses the jira formatted text to html (e.x. *Hello World* -> <b>Hello World</b>).

 

Thanks a lot! 

Tobi

Hi Tobias,

the JIRA markup format is similar to the Textile markup format, but with some differences. As far as I know, there is no exact javascript parser for it.

However, there is a REST API call that can be made to the server to parse wiki markup into html. Example:

jQuery.ajax({
    contentType: 'application/json',
    type: 'POST',
    url: '/rest/api/1.0/render',
    data: '{"rendererType":"atlassian-wiki-renderer","unrenderedMarkup":"*Hello World*","issueKey":"SUPPORT-1"}',
    success: function( response ) {
        console.log(response);
    }
});

The issueKey portion of the parameters is not required, so if you are doing something that does not require the context of an issue, it will work without it.

Hey, thanks a lot but i found a solution by myself. 

I needed to add &expand=renderedFields in the URL and everything is fine.

 

@Stephen Deutsch your solution works fine too.
