Why is the Text Formatting broken/missing in Jira Comments?

Joern Guy Suess asked this question · 21 karma ·

I have posted a comment formatted using the wiki notation shown at

as the manual states is possible.

The wiki text is not interpreted and the text editing widgets are not shown.

Hi Joem,

It sounds like your comment field has been configured to use the plain text renderer instead of the wiki style renderer. You can change this by editing your field configuration. You can also read more about renderers.

Looking for something else?
