How can I create an auto-link with [entry.FIELD_NAME1]+[entry.FIELD_NAME2]

Rohit Agarwal Dec 10, 2015

If I am creating a confiform field definition and selecting the definition type as 'autolink'

Basically I want to create a link with a prefix value and a dynamically added value to a field within the entry.

How do I achieve this concat ability?


do not bother too much with the autolink field definition type. If it is any other field definition type that I can use and present the resultant as a link on the entry. That should be fine.


To understand with an example:

Let us say, an entry in the form is: Facebook username: usernameXYZ

then it should create a link:

at least create the above link as the field value. If possible have a label for it: Facebook Profile(hyperlink or anchor tag).

Hi @Rohit Agarwal


Very sorry for not addressing your question abot ConfiForms on Atlassian Answers earlier. It simply got unnoticed...

It is always better to ask us directly using the contact form on

What you are trying to do is absolutely possible with ConfiForms and there a lot of way how to do that: we can use a calculated or formula filed to get this set or we can use Field Definition rules or we can use ConfiForms IFTTT macro to get the record updated "on save"


Please send your question and example storage format for form configuration directly to us, vertuna(at) and we help you


Best Regards

I figured a way to do it. Through the [entry.FIELD_NAME] URL pattern. works like a charm!

No worries on late responses!

Please give me an example of the URL pattern.


Thanks in advance.

Add ConfiForms Field Definition of autolink to you form and configure the pattern parameter the way you want, mixing together static data with references to fields through [entry.field_name] notations to form a valid URL
