How do I get a user name to show up as a hyperlink in JIRA comment?

None of the three option below worked, using Chrome.

I want the reader to click on the link so a PDF is opened. We do not want to attached files, just use links:

Example

file:///V:\WIP\Jigs and fixtures\T-011 - SCS PIR motion sensor tester\PDF\Stocko subboard with edge connection - WDP001403.PDF (appears in blue)

V:\WIP\Jigs and fixtures\T-011 - SCS PIR motion sensor tester\PDF\Stocko subboard with edge connection - WDP001403.PDF (appears in black)

file:///V:/WIP/Jigs%20and%20fixtures/T-011%20-%20SCS%20PIR%20motion%20sensor%20tester/PDF/Stocko%20subboard%20with%20edge%20connection%20-%20WDP001403.PDF (appears in blue)

In the JIRA comment, try putting the file locations inside square brackets.

Examples:

[file:///c:/temp/foo.txt]
[file:///z:/file/on/network/share.txt]

Your question title mentions 'user name', though. Is that a typo or do you want to know how to mention users as well?
