I stumbled upon some problematic issue. I am programatically generating values for a rich-text field. I want to fill a rich-text field with a string containing wiki-markup with table symbols:
||text1||text2|| \\ |text3|text4|
and I hope to get the string broken into separare table rows like this:
However what I actually get is something like this, as if putting a line break between cell markers creates a line break INSIDE the cell:
When I looked up database value of such field it shows two spaces in the area that jira interprets as a line break.
I tried putting all kinds of spaces, yet i can't force jira to break the whole line into separate cell rows.
What symbol should I use inside the string to force jira to read it as a new table row indicator?
I haven't found any elegant solution to this problem, so I created slightly messy, but working one.
the two unidentified symbols are:
In this combination they are treades as enter. Yet, when I inject them to the string Jira sees it not as a single carriage return, but as two entities and still creates carriage return INSIDE cell.
So I created a special issue with JUST carriage return. Then I import the value of it into the string, and it works ok. Aboslutely unprofessional, but working... ;)
