We are evaluating Documents plugin. Is there an easy way to link to documents or folders within JIRA issue?

Hi Nilesh,

You can add a reference to a folder in the Description field of a JIRA issue or in a JIRA comment by entering the whole URL of it (the URL that you see in address bar when you have the folder's content displayed in Documents tab of the project).

This does not work for files though.

You could add a request for this in the Bitbucket repository of Documents ( so we can consider it as an item for a next version.

Thank you,


This issue was fixed in versions 2.2.0 (for JIRA 5.x) and 3.1.0 for (JIRA 6.x) of the Documents add-on that were released on June 29, 2013. You can add references to documents by using the {doc-key} macro.

Is the doc key unique per project or unique in the entire system?

Doc-key is unique in the system. It is actually the ID of the document from the database table.
