Can you add a hyperlink to JIRA description and/or comment area?

If so how do you do it correctly.

Thanks

Yes you. Both of the JIRA system fields you mention above uses the JIRA Wiki Renderer which has many fun formatting you can choose from! Take a read below.

https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=all

In the "LINKS" section, you will have to use:

[http://jira.atlassian.com]
[Atlassian|http://atlassian.com]

thank you!!!

When I try to send a link like as suggested for the 'description, field while creating a JIRA ticket through a R script,

library(httr)

x <- list(fields = list(project = c(key = "TEST"),
summary = "New Issue Ticket Created",
description = "[Issue Doc|http://sharepointsite.com/folder/filname.ext]",
issuetype = c(name = "Task"),
assignee = c(name = assigneeUsrName)
)
)

response <- POST("https://somecompany.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/",
body = RJSONIO::toJSON(x), authenticate("usrName","pwd", "basic"),
add_headers("Content-Type" = "application/json"), verbose())

I only see the text in the description field instead of a hyperlink.

[Issue Doc|http://sharepointsite.com/folder/filname.ext]

What am I missing here?
