Learning how to create links quickly is important.

Creates an internal hyperlink to the specified anchor or attachment. Appending the '#' sign followed by an anchor name will lead into a specific bookmarked point of the desired page. Having the '^' followed by the name of an attachment will lead into a link to the attachment of the current issue.

Creates a link to an external resource, special characters that come after the URL and are not part of it must be separated with a space.

The [] around external links are optional in the case you do not want to use any alias for the link.


Creates a link to an email address, complete with mail icon.


Creates a download link to a file on your computer or on a network share that you have mapped to a drive. To access the file, you must right click on the link and choose 'Save Target As'.

By default, this only works on Internet Explorer but can also be enabled in Firefox (see docs).

Creates a bookmark anchor inside the page. You can then create links directly to that anchor. So the link [My Page#here] will link to wherever in 'My Page' there is an {anchor:here} macro, and the link [#there] will link to wherever in the current page there is an {anchor:there} macro.
Creates a link to the user profile page of a particular user, with a user icon and the user's full name.

Images can be embedded into a wiki renderable field from attached files or remote sources.

Jira Comment Syntax


Inserts an image into the page.

If a fully qualified URL is given the image will be displayed from the remote source, otherwise an attached image file is displayed.

Insert a thumbnail of the image into the page (only works with images that are attached to the page).

For any image, you can also specify attributes of the image tag as a comma separated list of name=value pairs like so.


Some attachments of a specific type can be embedded into a wiki renderable field from attached files.


Embeds an object in a page, taking in a comma-separated of properties.

Default supported formats:

  • Flash (.swf)
  • Quicktime movies (.mov)
  • Windows Media (.wma, .wmv)
  • Real Media (.rm, .ram)
  • MP3 files (.mp3)

Other types of files can be used, but may require the specification of the 'classid', 'codebase' and 'pluginspage' properties in order to be recognised by web browsers.

Common properties are:

  • width - the width of the media file
  • height - the height of the media file
  • id - the ID assigned to the embedded object

Due to security issues, files located on remote servers are not permitted Styling
By default, each embedded object is wrapped in a 'div' tag. If you wish to style the div and its contents, override the 'embeddedObject' CSS class. Specifying an ID as a property also allows you to style different embedded objects differently. CSS class names in the format 'embeddedObject-ID' are used.


Tables allow you to organise content in a rows and columns, with a header row if required.


Makes a table. Use double bars for a table heading row.

The code given here produces a table that looks like:

heading 1heading 2heading 3
col A1col A2col A3
col B1col B2col B3
