How can my HipChat addon open URLs with custom schemes?

My goal is to open a custom-schemed URL when a user clicks on one of my addon's glances in the sidebar.  All my users have the App that this scheme is associated with, so the system will launch the appropriate app when the URL is opened.

I have added the URL as an ExternalPage and then set that external page as the target of the glance, but HipChat complains that the URL is not "absolute".   I'm guessing the problem is that HipChat has a whitelist of allowed schemes, so I'm wondering if there is a way to modify that whitelist for our installation of HipChat.
