Text Breaks

Wiki Markup allows you to insert breaks or different kinds of hyphens and dashes.



(empty line)

Produces a new paragraph


Creates a line break.


Creates a horizontal ruler.


Produces em dash — symbol.


Produces en dash – symbol.

Creating links is easy with Wiki Markup.



[Crucible Review CR-FE-100|CR-FE-100]

Creates a link to a Crucible review or FishEye artifact using the internal key reference for the item.

[Atlassian Crucible|]

Creates a link to an external resource, special characters that come after the URL and are not part of it must be separated with a space. External links are denoted with an arrow icon.



Creates a link to an email address.


Creates a download link to a file on your computer or on a network share that you have mapped to a drive. To access the file, you must right click on the link and choose "Save Target As".


Creates a bookmark anchor inside the page. You can then create links directly to that anchor. So a link like this: [My Page#here] will link to wherever in "My Page" there is an {anchor:here} macro, and the link [#there] will link to wherever in the current page there is an {anchor:there} macro.


Lists allow you to present information as a series of ordered items. Use asterisks * for bulleted lists and hash symbols # for numbered lists.



* A bulleted list
* Second item
** indented item 1
** indented item 2

# A numbered list
# Second item
## indented item 1
## indented item 2


  • A bulleted list
  • Second item
    • indented item 1
    • indented item 2
  1. A numbered list
  2. Second item
    1. indented item 1
    2. indented item 2


Images can be referenced from remote sources only.




The image will be displayed from the remote source.

!|align=right, vspace=4!

For any image, you can also specify attributes of the image tag as a comma separated list of name=value pairs as shown in this example.


Tables allow you to organise content in a rows and columns, with a header row if required.



||heading 1||heading 2||heading 3||
|col A1|col A2|col A3|
|col B1|col B2|col B3|

Makes a table. Use double bars for a table heading row.

The code above produces a table that looks like this:

heading 1

heading 2

heading 3

col A1

col A2

col A3

col B1

col B2

col B3

Advanced Formatting

This section covers panels, code windows and showing plain text with no formatting.




Makes a preformatted block of text with no syntax highlighting. All the optional parameters of the {noformat} macro are valid for the {panel} macro as well.

This is a no-formatted piece of text,
so *no* _formatting_ is done here.


Embraces a block of text within a fully customizable panel. The optional parameters you can define are as follows.

  • title: Title of the panel
  • borderStyle: The style of the border this panel uses (solid, dashed and other valid CSS border styles)
  • borderColor: The color of the border this panel uses
  • borderWidth: The width of the border this panel uses
  • bgColor: The background color of this panel
  • titleBGColor: The background color of the title section of this panel

    Some text in a basic panel

    My Title

    Some text with a title

{code}code goes here{code}

// Some comments here
public String getFoo()
return foo;

<another tag="attribute"/>

The code macro displays a preformatted block for showing code with syntax highlighting. All the optional parameters of the {panel} macro are valid for {code}. The default language is Java but you can specify JavaScript, ActionScript, XML or SQL.

    Is it posible to create additional syntax highlighting for languagues not on the list?

    Our code is on visual and although the code is colored by fisheye, our crucible comments can't be highlighted.
