How to display an external image in a Jira Cloud comment? Edited


I just migrated from Jira self-hostedto Jira Cloud and I can't post an external image in a comment.

I used to use !! but it does not seem to work anymore on Jira Cloud.

Is there any way to do it in Cloud?

are you wanting to simply include a link to the image or the image itself. if a link then just click the link icon or cmd-k (mac) and paste the link and provide text to display (optional). If you want to paste the image then use the insert image/file icon or just copy/paste.


I'd like to display the image itself but it's an external one so I only have a link.

I would like the same behavior as there is here:screen_20190920bb38


On Jira self-hosted 8.0.0, I could do it with !<image_url>!.

have a look at Earl's response in this thread

haven't tried it. LMK if it works for you or not.

Yes, that's what I was using on my self-hosted Jira but unfortunatly it does not work on the Cloud one:


I don't know it something must be configured on Jira to enable this.
