http://nginx.org/r/secure_link_md5 says

"""
The expression should contain the secured part of a link (resource) and
a secret ingredient. If the link has a limited lifetime, the expression

Yes.

Create the link and do the configuration like the documentation suggests.

If it still does not work for you, can you show all of the steps that
you take to secure one specific url? That might make it clear where the
problem first appears. (Maybe the documentation needs changing.)
