Send custom email with rich text formatting

Hello smile

I have kind of an issue when sending a using send custom email with scriptrunner. 

See the following code:

<% 
def userKey = "customer.care"
def commentManager = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()
def comments = commentManager.getComments(issue)
def lastCommentFromUser = comments?.findAll {it.authorApplicationUser.key == userKey}
def issueDesc = issue.description
def emailAdr = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(10301))
def emailSubj = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(10805))
def emailBody = issue.getCustomFieldValue(componentManager.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(11374)) 
def emailInfo = "<br/><br/>From: " << emailAdr << "<br/>" << "Sent: " << "$lastCommentFromUser.created" << "<br/>" << "To: " << "ACNVFEscalations@acnpacific.com.au" << "<br/>" << "Subject: " << emailSubj << "<br/><br/>"
                                          
if (lastCommentFromUser) 
	lastCommentFromUser = out << emailBody.replaceAll("\\n","<br/>") << "\n\n" << emailInfo << "\n\n" << lastCommentFromUser.last().body.replaceAll("\n","<br>")  
	else if (issueDesc)
        lastCommentFromUser = out << emailBody.replaceAll("\\n","<br/>") << "\n\n" << "------Original Message------" << "\n\n" << issueDesc.replaceAll("\\n","<br/>")
		else lastCommentFromUser = out << emailBody.replaceAll("\\n","<br/>")
%>

When sending email with HTML text setting (or plain text), the comments with bold are rendered as *text* instead of the text actually being bold. 

 

Are there any solutions to this, i was also thinking of adding rich text to the email body field to send emails with.

 

I greatly appreciate your assistance. 

regards, 

Pon
