JEditor modules

It's possible to enable/disable certain JEditor features by enabling/disabling its modules.

To access JEditor modules go to Jira administration > Add-ons> Manage add-ons > JEditor and then expand the list modules.

Most modules are system and must not be disabled (doing so will disable core JEditor function or make JEditor's behavior unstable).

Here's the list of JEditor modules that control specific functions and may be controlled by Jira administrators:

  1. Use browser to print PDF (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.pdf-print)
    Default state: disabled
    This module, when enabled, forces JEditor to render PDFs using browser's built-in print function instead of generating PDF on the server side. The library that JEditor uses to render PDFs doesn't support certain fonts and cannot print some characters (for example Chinese characters).
  2. Allow 3rd party scripts/add-ons to update JEditor-rendered textareas (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.allow-3rd-party-updates)
    Default state: disabled
    This module, when enabled, forces JEditor to watch for changes to textareas made from "outside" (by 3rd party add-ons). When the module is disabled JEditor will just ignore any change and overwrite the value of a textarea. Enable this module if you use Behaviors/ScriptRunner to update fields rendered by JEditor.
  3. JEditor for Hipchat (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.hipchat-support)
    Default state: disabled
    This module, when enabled, forces JEditor to convert all comments to HipChat-supported format. HipChat supports HTML, but this support is limited. Enable this module if the comments that you receive in HipChat contain visible HTML tags.
  4. JEditor Settings Cache (strict mode) (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.strict-cache-mode)
    Default state: disabled
    This module, when enabled, forces JEditor to reload all JEditor settings on every page load ignoring client-side settings cache. Enable this module only if you experience issues with settings propagation or when our support engineer asks you to do so. The module has a direct impact on the server's performance. We do not recommend enabling this module on Jira instances that serve more than 500 users.
  5. JEditor Prepopulation for Wiki Fields (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.prepopulate-wikifields)
    Default state: disabled
    When this module is enabled, JEditor will prepopulate all textarea fields including those rendered by Wiki Renderer or Plain Text Renderer.
  6. JEditor Support for Threaded Comments (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.threaded-comments-support)
    Default state: disabled
    When this module is enabled JEditor will render the Threaded Comments Reply text field. Please note that the Threaded Comments add-on is unsupported. This feature's status should be always considered as Labs/Beta.
  7. JEditor Advanced Issue Linkifier (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.issue-linkifier)
    Default state: enabled
    This module, when enabled, allows JEditor to render issue keys as links with context awareness. This means that JEditor will render closed issue keys as crossed out links, correctly render moved issue keys, etc.
  8. JEditor for CP users, JEditor SD * modules
    Default state: disabled
    These modules are related to JEditor for Service Desk. You can read more about configuring JEditor for Service Desk here.
