MySQL doesn't support those extended emoji characters with JIRA.

Or the other way around - JIRA doesn't support them when backed by MySQL.

I don't know which one of those the fault lies with, but it's one of the two.  Either way, you can't use extended emojis with JIRA.

Thanks! - Migration to Postgres in the backlog - just got bumped up...

Ah, good, that's the first solution I would have offered!
