Description field special characters not working
Since the update to Jira v8.5.1 it seems that the character = will be replaced with the characters = This is happening when you add some link to the description of component version and not only for =.
What is the problem here and how can it be solved? We have now a lot of component versions with this problem in more than 200 JIRA projects? Is there a way how to solve this bug?
Thanks for your support
I'm really sorry for missing this. I haven't read it fully and though it is not a critical error. I wasn't aware that it is affecting 200 projects. This version should be available soon and it will convert = back to = when displaying description.
If you don't want to wait for release you can also update your database table (AO_102D86_CMP_VERSION_MAPPING) directly and disable/re-enable the add-on to reset it's cache.
Also if you use wiki markup we will render it in the next version.
