Is it possible to place a link to an attachment in a JIRA issue comment if the attachment filename has spaces in it

JIRA 5.0

Trying to link to a file attachment with name: RE 4 Wheeler - RFQ.msg using wiki markup code: [Clicky text|^RE 4 Wheeler - RFQ.msg]

But not having much luck... any suggestions?

Cheers,

David

Right click the attachment, get the link location and use it. Space shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for that Jobin but wondering is it possible to use the [^filename.ext] syntax or is that not possible when there are spaces in the filename...?

Never tried that. Try replacing space with %20 and see if it makes any difference.

Right click and copy link location worked so thanks @Jobin for that quick fix.

Replacing spaces with %20 didn't work :( Confused.
