Clickable Custom Field values in Issue Navigator


I have a custom field (multi select list) with client names

It shows up in my issue navigator (personal & default).

However, the names in the column are not clickable.

Is there a workaround (or a correct way) to make this work ?

Thanks for your answers.

A multi-select-list is a simple list of strings that you put on an issue. Jira has no way of knowing what those strings are beyond "text for humans to read", let alone know how to construct a url to offer a link to.

You could change your options so that they have the links you need - put the text in as <a href= type links. I've not tested that with quick-edit though.
