The go-atlassian jira module provides a set of functions and types for interacting with the Jira REST API. It is designed to make it easy for developers to build powerful integrations and automations that leverage the capabilities of the Jira platform.
The module is available in two versions: v2 and v3. These versions correspond to different versions of the Jira REST API, with v2 supporting Jira versions 6.4 to 7.2, and v3 supporting Jira versions 7.3 and later.

ADF Format

The Atlassian Document Format (ADF) is a JSON-based format used by Atlassian products, including Jira, to represent rich content such as text, tables, and lists. The jira module in go-atlassian provides support for working with ADF content in both the v3package.
commentBody := jira.CommentNodeScheme{}
commentBody.Version = 1
commentBody.Type = "doc"
//Append Header
Type: "heading",
Attrs: map[string]interface{}{"level": 1},
Content: []*jira.CommentNodeScheme{
Type: "text",
Text: "Header 1",
In v3, the IssueService and related services like CommentService provide functions that allow you to interact with ADF content. For example, the CreateIssue function in v3 includes a parameter for Fields, which is a struct that includes fields for specifying various attributes of the new issue, including the issue summary, description, and any custom fields. The Fields struct includes a field for Description, which can be set to a struct representing ADF content.
