A team mate of mine found the following issue, while exporting XML from Jira.
Anybody else ran into this issue before?
If you search for issues and choose the Export option there are many formats you can export to, XML is one of them. In the XML generated there is a link to the original search URL, if this URL contains an “&” then JIRA isn’t converting it to the correct XML format which is “&” and makes the XML unreadable. This can also occur if there is an & in any of the data fields such as a task description or a comment field or an Epic name etc etc.
Secondly it is not correctly writing html line breaks. If a line break occurs in any field such as comments or descriptions this will be exported to XML as <br/>, this messes up the XML tags and again makes in unreadable.
Both of these could be solved using <![CDATA[ ]]> for example.
