Add an "issue link" to an external web page in the JIRA issue create screen Edited

David Simpson Community Champion Sep 12, 2017

Is there a way to add a "Web Link" i.e. an Issue Link to an external system on the issue creation screen?

I can't see a good way of doing this.

There is - I added a couple the other day. You need to have system Admin rights to do this.

Add a Custom field, then on the Select a Field Type, click on Advanced (down the left side) and select Message Custom Field, as per below

Do you mean create a custom field and add the web link in that?

Or this will create an external link in the Issue Link section?

I'm after the latter.

As described above, you create a specific type of Custom Field and associate it with the Create screen. You can then put in any HTML / wiki markup as default text. When finished it will look something like this :
