You can display an image from an external website without attaching it to the article. In this case, just embed the URL for the image file. You can also use this option to embed other content that is hosted outside of YouTrack YouTrack automatically recognizes links to content from the following sources:

  • Google Workspace

  • YouTube

  • Figma

When you use the Embed Link option in the editing toolbar, YouTrack automatically wraps the link in special characters that flag external content in Markdown syntax. Links to YouTube videos, Google calendars, and Figma designs embed the target file automatically. Other content from Google Workspace apps will need to be published to the web beforehand. To learn more about embedding content from these sources, see YouTube Video, Embedded Content from Google Workspace Apps, Google Calendars, and Figma Designs.
