Please see Text Formatting Notation Help

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

Like Tim Muller likes this

Does not work for me on Jira v7.12.1

Hello I am trying to insert hyperlink for the text (Jispa Health) below but I am not able to execute it. Can you please guide us.

[Jispa health |]

[Link Text|URL]

try giving as a plain text

I also tried below by comment on few sites but didn't work,

 <a href="">Jispa Health</a>

mistake i wanted to reply instead of post an answer

In some cases its easy like this box


some you'd have to use this format <a href=link here"#">Anchor Text here</a>
