Jama features an internal link system that can be accessed through the "Link" icon on the rich-text options bar. This system makes it possible to link to other pages within Jama such as sets and items. It also allows to create direct links to attachment files easily which can be used by reviewers in the review center.

First, select the Link icon:

Recently Viewed - This tab shows all recently viewed items.
Explorer - This tab shows the Explorer Tree to find items by navigating the project hierarchy.
Releases - This tab shows the release view to find items by release.
Search - This tab allows the user to type in a search term to find items.
Attachments - This tab allows the user to link to an attachment by uploading a file from their local machine or selecting an existing attachment.

Additionally, Users can add in their own URLs and Text manually by typing directly in the URL and Text boxes respectively.

Select the desired item to populate the link. If you want to change the text of the link, use the Text field. Select Select to insert the link into the rich-text field.

To edit an existing link, highlight a portion or all of the selected link in the rich text field and select the Link icon again.

To unlink an existing link, highlight a portion or all of the selected link in the rich text field and select the Unlink icon. Unlinking will preserve the text but remove the underlying link to the Jama item.
