How to place a help file link (confluence page) in JIRA create and edit screens?

I am looking for a way to place a link to a Confluence page next to a custom field in JIRA. Precisely, the Create and View screens in JIRA.

For instance, we have a field named Type of Issues with multiple values provided for selection in a dropdown. Since this is a custom field, we would like to provide a help file link (pointing to Confluence page) beside the custom field which lists examples for available values to help user make the right choice.  Is there any way to do this ?

You can use HTML code in the description of the field.

Something like

<a href="http://yourinfoweb">See examples here</> should work


PS. You would probably need a reindex for this to work

Thanks fran. We don't want to use the description field though. We want this to be a link next to the custom field (Just the way View Workflow link appears below the status)
