I'd like to create a custom field that allows other developers, QA testers, etc. to specify an external issue ID that automatically creates a link that incorporates the field value. We're currently still using a separate bug tracker for our QA team, although we're migrating away from it.
I am only able to select from a limited subset of renderers for a custom field. Is there a way to create a new custom renderer that will let me build a URL based on the field's value as part of the renderer?
You can develop you own custom field, based on some generic custom field, for example, GenericTextCFType. Then in your view template you can make any links you want. Here how youw view.vm could be:
#if ($value) <a href='http://your_inner_tracker?id=$value'>Inner tracker</a> #end
So, absolutely no Java coding is necesarry.
Hope, it helped.
@James Tuttle, sorry can't understand you. You would like to know where to place velocity template?
Anyway, there is my old project, very simple one. Maybe it could help you somehow: https://github.com/grundic/jira-color-custom-field
