We recently upgraded from JIRA 5.2 to 6.0.2, and our custom release notes template apparently broke. Most of it works ok, but we have one custom field (called "Config Notes") that now isn't displaying correctly. Previously, it would display as nicely formatted and indented text. However, now it looks like all the HTML formatting tags and special characters (tabs, etc.) are being displayed along with the text. For example, if this is the content of the field:
###OPTIONAL### ctc.cfg ===== /Machine/materialManager/materialNamingPolicy #RenameMaterialBaseOnJobID -> true
Then this is what the output looks like on the screen:
###OPTIONAL### <br/> ctc.cfg <br/> ===== <br/> /Machine/materialManager/materialNamingPolicy <br/> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;#RenameMaterialBaseOnJobID -&gt; true
The formatting is important - I'd really like to get it to display in the release notes properly again. The macro we use to generate the config notes is here:
#macro (getConfigNote $issue $customFieldManager) #set ($customFields = $customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects($issue.project.getLong("id"), $issue.issueType.getString("id"))) #foreach($customField in $customFields) #if($customField.name.equals("Config Changes")) #if($customField.getValue($issue)) $textUtils.indent($textUtils.br($textUtils.leadingSpaces($customField.getValue($issue))) ,2,false) #end #end #end #end
Any help in tracking down what broke and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
You have a couple of options for solving the problem. You could add
...to the top of your template file; or you could set the custom field's value to a variable that has 'html' at the end of its name:
#set($contentAsHtml = $customField.getValue($issue))
... and there are a couple more options if you were to obtain the value via a custom method call, but I'm guessing that's not what you're after.
You'll have this one solved in no time.
