Markdown Support

You can use Markdown formatting to write structured content with FireHydrant. We support basic Markdown syntax with some specific limits on which tags are supported. Here's a quick rundown of which tags are supported and the syntax you can use to create them.

Note: If trying to format custom Slack notifications, Slack doesn't support standard Markdown but a custom markup language called mrkdwn. The styling guide below covers standard Markdown, which FireHydrant supports in most other Runbook steps and certain areas of the product.
