Here is the way to add a link:

[Link Text|URL]


Thank you :)   Would this work for a document that is not online and simply saved on your hard drive?

This style of hyperlinking works on web url's only.  I need to add a hyperlink for a word document that is saved on my shared drive.  How do i do this?

Thank you so much

Adding links is not working in Jira 7.6.4, none of the methods described on this page work
