How to make custom JIRA field render correctly in Confluence?

We use Kepler's Custom Field to create some nifty fields that run various SIL scripts.


The issue I have is that on many custom fields they are returning JIRA issue keys, like JIRA-123. In JIRA these are hyper-linked meaning you can click on them to get to the issue. Really handy. 


When I render the custom fields in Confluence using the JIRA filter macro the custom field (and ANY custom field mind you) don't render as hyper-links.


How can I get our custom fields to render in Confluence? It must be possible because the standard fields render correctly in Confluence (like Key, Fixed Version, etc.) .


We have just written SIL, no velocity or anything for the field. 


Attached a screenshot of how things are rendering in Confluence at the moment.:
