Markdown in PDF downloads

We cannot display Markdown text PDF downloads of a dashboard or the PDF generated from a dashboard subscription. This is because your browser renders Markdown, but we generate PDFs on our server. In other words, we create the PDF before it reaches your browser, so it can’t render the Markdown.

Supported Markdown and HTML syntaxes

Atlassian Analytics supports a subset of syntaxes from Markdown and HTML to give you enough flexibility in how you style your text.

Phrase emphasis

1 2 3 *italic* and **bold** _also italics_ and __also bold__ <em>still italic</em> and <strong>still bold</strong>

Underlines

<u>my underlined text</u>

Hyperlinks

To create hyperlinks in Markdown:

1 2 [link text](https://chartio.com) or <https://chartio.com>

To create hyperlinks with HTML:

1 <a href="https://example.com">link text</a>

Headings

Markdown supports two styles of headers: Setext and atx.

Setext-style headers are “underlined” using equal signs (for first-level headers) and dashes (for second-level headers). For example:

1 2 3 4 5 This is an H1 ============= This is an H2 -------------

Any number of underlining equal signs or hyphens will work.

Atx-style headers use 1-6 hash characters at the start of the line, corresponding to header levels 1-6. For example:

1 2 3 4 5 6 # Heading 1 ## Heading 2 ### Heading 3 #### Heading 4 ##### Heading 5 ###### Heading 6

Alternatively, you can use HTML heading tags:

1 2 3 4 5 6 <h1>Heading 1</h1> <h2>Heading 2</h2> <h3>Heading 3</h3> <h4>Heading 4</h4> <h5>Heading 5</h5> <h6>Heading 6</h6>

Ordered lists

To create ordered lists with Markdown, use numbers followed by periods:

1 2 3 1. first 2. second 3. third

Here’s how you’d make an ordered list with HTML:

1 2 3 4 5 <ol> <li>first</li> <li>second</li> <li>third</li> </ol>

Unordered lists

To create unordered lists with Markdown, you can use asterisks, pluses, and hyphens — interchangeably — as list markers:

1 2 3 4 * first * second * third * fourth

Here’s how you’d make an unordered list with HTML:

1 2 3 4 5 <ul> <li>first</li> <li>second</li> <li>third</li> </ul>

Inline code spans

With Markdown, wrap your inline code with backticks.

1 I want to call out my `code`.

With HTML, wrap your inline code with <code> tags.

1 I want to call out my <code>other code</code> with HTML.

Code blocks

With Markdown, code blocks are delimited by backticks.

1 2 3 4 ``` system.out.println("Markdown is cool"); // random code ```

With HTML, you’d wrap your code with <pre> tags:

1 2 3 <pre>system.out.println("HTML is also cool"); // more random code </pre>

Quote blocks

With Markdown:

1 2 3 4 5 > Email-style angle brackets are used for quote blocks. >> You can also nest them. >> You can also *nest* and **format** inside a quote block > To break the nested blockquote, add a space between lines. >Markdown allows you to be lazy and only put the > before the first line of a hard-wrapped paragraph

With HTML:

1 <blockquote>This is a quote</blockquote>

Add another line to resume regular paragraph text.
