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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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 ...
