Hi. Summary field is useless for my needs, and since I can't disable it, i would like to insert a cickable hyperlink into it.
How can I do that?
I tried anchor tag and markup so far, but it displays as text.
You can't - the summary field is a simple string of text, rendered as text. It doesn't interpret formatting code within it.
You could try hacking the .vm that displays it to enable extra formatting, but you've got a horrid problem there in that Jira often uses the summary to link from display to the issue, so you'd end up with either your links not working, or the intended Jira links not working.
I suspect that this request is pretty much a non-starter, unless you want to redesign Jira's UI and then rewrite several chunks of the code.
