I am a developer. A backlog jira is assigned to me for grooming. The jira contains a short description of the requirement and also the acceptance criteria. Also a problematic sentence as below, which points to a document.
"Find additional information in the specification document located in the following link --"
My scrum lead raised a concern that this way the requirement could get modified at a later stage if the JIRA is pointing to a document. According to him, the complete requirement should be defined in the JIRA itself. So he wants me to ask the same to my Product Owner/Architecture team to confirm the same over comments on the JIRA. Now the document itself is 50 pages long and cannot be fully posted on the JIRA.
How do I politely ask over comments on JIRA to not point the requirement to a document attached on a URL. The PO is a very senior guy and I want to ask this in a diplomatic way.
