Wiki markup supports creating tables using pipe characters. We use these extensively in our issue descriptions, and they render correctly in the new issue view.
However, if we edit the description the new (markdown) editor fails to load giving "This text has unsupported formatting" and we're left editing raw source.
Worse, there seems to be no way to create a table in the new editor.
I searched for any info on this missing functionality and whether there are plans to restore it, but haven't found anything.
I have the same problem.
Don't know if it's a bug or if Atlassian remove the option for wiki markup tables in Jira.
but i have a workaround (that work for now).
When you are in your issue view, for exmaple:
Add "?oldIssueView=true" after your issue id, so your url will look like:
Than you will have the option to add tables to your description field and it will be shown when you are back to the new look, it goes away if you will try to edit the field in the new look.
