Yes you. Both of the JIRA system fields you mention above uses the JIRA Wiki Renderer which has many fun formatting you can choose from! Take a read below.

https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=all

In the "LINKS" section, you will have to use:

[http://jira.atlassian.com]
[Atlassian|http://atlassian.com]

thank you!!!

When I try to send a link like as suggested for the 'description, field while creating a JIRA ticket through a R script,

library(httr)

x <- list(fields = list(project = c(key = "TEST"),
summary = "New Issue Ticket Created",
description = "[Issue Doc|http://sharepointsite.com/folder/filname.ext]",
issuetype = c(name = "Task"),
assignee = c(name = assigneeUsrName)
)
)

response <- POST("https://somecompany.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/",
body = RJSONIO::toJSON(x), authenticate("usrName","pwd", "basic"),
add_headers("Content-Type" = "application/json"), verbose())

I only see the text in the description field instead of a hyperlink.

[Issue Doc|http://sharepointsite.com/folder/filname.ext]

What am I missing here?

Same issue, if I put custom links and not web links, it only displays a text.

Like # people like this

Same here. There must be some limitation to the external link feature. If I use the "Atlassian" example, it works fine. But if I have a slightly more complicated link, it does not.

Like NhojEntuna likes this

Same here. Back then when we were using sharepoint, the link was ok and worked fine but when we changed the server from sharepoint to another one, it doesn't work anymore.

I use Chrome and have the issue.

Same here.

I have found if the link is really long, it doesn't seem to work, so i go to tinyurl.com and get a shorter URL and I've tried multiple time, and it has worked every time. 

 

For example:

[link title|https://tinyurl.com/y6qgdnfm]

Seeing the same here in 7.13.  Is this a newish bug?  It seems like it used to work.  And is it fixed in some 8.X?

The problem occurs in IE. Create the links in Chrome and everything works fine.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
