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



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 simple text fields like Summary, inline LaTex must be wrapped inside //(..//)  and LaTex block must be wrapped inside //[..//].


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}.


All LaTeX content will be rendered as below.
