Use JEditor for body field


I'm testing JETI at the moment and find it very good. The issue is that I'd like to have Jeditor as the renderer for the Body field. Can this be done?

Hi Carl,

I'm afraid it is not possible in a generic way. However, you can use JIRA's wiki markup to format your body content.


Wooops, just sent off an email regarding this.

Chaining handlers would be great, as using JEditor for (needed) RTF handling precludes the use of JETI, and makes for a difficult choice. Our use case need *both* RTF email handling and JETI features.

Hi Rob, I have received your email but wanted to answer you here.

To put it short, handler chaining is not possible out-of-the-box due to several reasons.

Neither plugins are prepared for that and classes of a plugin cannot be used in other plugins automatically but only via exported OSGi bundles.


Hi Tibor,

JEditor has public javascript api.

For example to convert a textarea to JEditor rendered field you need the following code:

var myTextArea = AJS.$('#my_textarea_id');

JEDITOR.replace(myTextArea, {toolbar : 'JFull'});

Please feel free to contact us if you need any help with integration.



Hi Alex,

We have started to integrate JEditor and sent our questions to your mail address.



Hi Tibor, this would absolutely improve JETI ! Go for it !

I have scheduled this feature. Please follow the corresponding issue.

Support for JEditor has just been released in version 5.3.3

See documentation for details
