Hey! I’m new no n8n and can’t figure out how to format text like embedding links, adding emojis, or applying italic or bold in body parameters of an HTTP request. Could you please help?

Hi @Kirill_Support_Engin, welcome to the community!

The HTTP request node will send raw data to a service of your choice, but it is not aware of the actual requirements of an API you are calling.

How to apply formatting to the data you are sending will therefore depend on what the API you are calling. If it expects markdown (a very popular markup language), a link would for example have to be sent like [a cool link]( which would translate to a cool link further down the line.

So may I suggest you check the documentation of the API you’re calling here for information on which data structure exactly they expect?


It was markdown. Thanks a ton!
