Symptoms

You can perform the following steps to create a download link to a file in JIRA:

1. Use 'Text Field' custom field type to represent the link to a file (Administration -> Issue Fields -> Custom Fields)
2. Enable the 'Wiki Style Renderer' for this 'Text Field' custom field (Administration -> Issue Fields -> Field Configurations)
3. In the Issue Screen, try to add a link in the 'Text Field' custom field. For example:

[file:///V:/Jira test/example.xls]

The file can be opened by right clicking the link and select on the 'Save Target As...'. Do note that this only works on Internet Explorer but can also be enabled in FireFox. Please see:
