Is there a way to make links in the build logs 'active' in the bamboo 'Build Log' page?

We often embed links to documentation in our error output and these links eventually wind up in our build logs. I'd like users to be able to click on these links directly from the build log in Bamboo rather than having to copy & past into the address bar.

You can't do it without a plugin or modification of Bamboo sources. Modification of source would be very easy:

  1. change com.atlassian.bamboo.build.SimpleLogEntry#getLog to "return log;"
  2. if your logs are longer than 1000 lines, you have to up the limit in com.atlassian.bamboo.build.ViewBuildLogs.java.

Security notice:

Allowing HTML in log output can lead to XSS attacks against your instance, so do it only if you have an internal instance or al willing to play with com.atlassian.bamboo.util.BambooStringUtils#encodeHtmlWithTagWhiteList to escape the output (the method wasn't meant for processing large amounts of data, so you'd need to make sure it's run only when really needed.)
