I am trying to add a non-http link on my Jira comment field.  How do I make it work?  The following works in Firefox.

Only some software recognises that as a link - Firefox does, Jira does not, so it does not present it as a link of any form.

You'd need to hack the "render field" code to get it to work as a link, and you'd be relying on all your users browsers supporting it.

Any suggestion on how to hack the render field code?  Do you mean the rvlink itself?  This is an external application we are using.


If you look at what Jira hands to a browser, when it spots a link, it reformats it as a link in the html.

It does not know to do that with other protocols, so it ignores your rvlink and puts plain text in the html.

You would need to download the source for Jira, find the renderer, add code to make it recognise rvlink data as a link and serve it up to browsers as a link.
