URL Links in issue Description don´t work(xslm file, docx file)

I create links in the description of the issue within JIRA but it does not work.

Does anyone know how to do it?


Hi Emanuel Lima,


Are you using Jira Cloud or Jira Server? And which links would you like to create? At least on Jira Cloud, we can add an external link to url or add an attachment to the description...

Claro, podes-me enviar um screenshot de como estás a adicionar um link na descrição?
