# LaTeX for JIRA

LaTeX for JIRA is the only plugin for rendering LaTeX inside JIRA Server. The latest version is 2.0.0. You can install this JIRA plugin at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.fulstech.jira-latex.

## Usage

This plugin renders LaTeX anywhere inside JIRA – even on Issue’s Summary. The syntax is very simple.

• For fields that use the Atlassian Wiki editor like Description or Comment, inline LaTex content must be wrapped inside the {latex-inline}…{latex-inline} macro and LaTex block content must be wrapped between {latex-block}…{latex-block}. For JIRA 7+, the macros have to be used in Text mode and not Visual mode.
• For simple text fields like Summary, inline LaTex must be wrapped inside //(..//)  and LaTex block must be wrapped inside //[..//].

## Example

As an example, after LaTeX for JIRA is installed, please paste the following text into Issue’s Summary:

Solve equation //(ax^2 + bx + c = 0//)

And for Issue’s Description, please use the following one:

Solution for equation {latex-inline}ax^2 + bx + c = 0{latex-inline} should be {latex-block}x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}{latex-block}.

For JIRA 7+, the macros have to be used in Text mode and not Visual mode.

All LaTeX content will be rendered as below.
