Giving format to a message custom field

I'd like to know how to give format to a Message Custom Field. When I use HTML in the default value the results in the user's screen show the HTML code, not the message as I'd like them to see.



If I enter this:

<font color="red">Check <a href="" target="_blank">this link</a> before proceed.</font>

I'd like to see a red text and a link to a new window, but what I get is:

<font color="red">Check <a href="" target="_blank">this link</a> before proceed.</font>

If I check again the Default Value now the content is:

<p>&lt;font color="red"&gt;Check &lt;a href="" target="_blank"&gt;this link&lt;/a&gt; before proceed.&lt;/font&gt;</p>


So, how do I have to write there so I can get the results I want?

You should use the Jira mark-up.

Use this instead:

{color:#d04437}Check [this link|] before proceed{color}


Tip: Go to the field 'Description' and create your message their (with markups) and copy that to your message field.

Great! It worked well. Many thanks
