JEditor modules

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

To access JEditor modules go to Jira administration > Manage apps > Manage apps > JEditor and then expand JEditor's list of modules.

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

Here's the list of JEditor modules that control specific functions and may be enabled/disabled 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 the 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 certain ranges of characters (for example Chinese characters). Enabling this module will allow exporting the issue table as it is seen on the search results page.
  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 made to the JEditor-rendered <textarea> elements by 3rd party add-ons. If the module is disabled, JEditor will just ignore such changes and overwrite the value of a textarea. We recommend enabling this module if you use ScriptRunner to update fields rendered by JEditor.
  3. JEditor Prepopulation for Wiki Fields
    (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.prepopulate-wikifields)
    Default state: disabled
    When this module is enabled, JEditor will prepopulate all multi-line text fields including those rendered by Wiki Renderer or Plain Text Renderer. By default, JEditor pre-populates only fields rendered by JEditor Renderer.
  4. JEditor Support for Threaded Comments
    (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.threaded-comments-support)
    Default state: disabled
    When this module is enabled, JEditor renders the Threaded Comments Reply text field as a normal Comment field. Please note that the Threaded Comments add-on is unsupported. This feature's status should be considered as Labs/Beta.
  5. JEditor Encode EL Syntax
    (com.jiraeditor.jeditor.encode-el-syntax)
    Default state: enabled
    This module, when enabled, forces JEditor to encode syntax that looks like OGNL expressions. This module is helpful when users are unable to create/edit Jira issues because of firewall interventions.

Please note: after you re-install JEditor, the modules will return to the default state.
