Bitbucket Markdown - Links with uncommon URL protocols like cdb://



We are using Bitbucket datacenter version 7.6.1 in our company. And we use some Windows tools which create links with their own URL protocol, which look e.g. like this:


On Windows and if click on such a link on a website, the Windows tool opens without problems. Now I would like to add such links to a file in a Bitbucket repository.

If I try to add such a link as [testlink](cdb:byname/opname/...), the link is not shown correctly, but links instead to the repository itself. 

Is there any possibility to register additional URL protocols as valid links in markdown files on Bitbucket? Or any other way to make these links work?

Thanks and best regards,
