I want to copy the content of an Insight Textarea Attribute to a jira custom field.
I do this with an Insight Postfunction “Set a Jira custom field with the attribute value from a selected object”
The content is copied, but the formatting is not correct. It looks like HTML-code is being copied.
How do I make sure that the text in the jira field is displayed the same as in the Insight object?
I am now using a jira multi text field with wiki rendering.
Anyone tips, suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
p.s. Attached a screenshot of the display in the jira field.
And a screenshot where you can see the display in Insight and the result in jira custom field
This is actually quite a huge issue.
I am facing to this and trying to solve that last few months.
Got official Atlassian reply - it is not supported.
There are two or three workarounds.
First is to strip all HTML tags and receive a plain text - use
Second approach is to create translation library - own method to convert html tags to wiki markup tags.
The last approach I dug somewhere deep in community is to use
class from the atlassian-renderer library and call convertXHtmlToWikiMarkup method for the object.
I am planning to go with last one, but had no time to proof it is working yet.
Hope it helped, let me know in case of success. Facing very same issue.
Cheers, Tom, Czechia
My first suggestion would have been to update the field configuration to ensure it's a wiki rendering, but you have done that already.
Have you tried clearing the formatting on the insight object attribute? Copy and paste it to notepad.
