Jira Automation: how do you reference an issue's url in jql?

I'm trying to automate sending emails to myself whenever someone creates a ticket inside my Jira project. I am setting up the email body and would like to have a link out to the ticket created (i.e. a link to https://[company][]). How do I do that with jql?

Hi Meghan - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can place this in the body of the email:

<a href="{{issue.toUrl}}">{{issue.summary}}</a>

You can sub out key for the word summary if you just want the ID. 

Thanks, this is exactly what I needed!

@John M Funkdo you have similar expression for release url?

I'd like to place link to release in the email body, I'm trying to automate sending email when release is marked 'released'.
