That made it work. What you need to do is change the renderer to WikiMarkup then enclose your link in [] brackets.

Hi,

You need to write the links like the given example which is below

[http://jira.atlassian.com] [Atlassian|http://atlassian.com]

you will get the links displayed as

http://jira.atlassian.com
Atlassian

Hope this helps!

Thanks Nitram! Got it. You have to change the renderer of the field also to WikiMarkup to make it work. Cheers!

Not working in my case.

I'm editing custom field of free text type and giving value as 

[http://jira.atlassian.com] [Atlassian|http://atlassian.com]

But not working as mentioned in the comment.

It gives following output: 

[http://jira.atlassian.com] [Atlassian|http://atlassian.com]

This conversation is 3.5 years old, things have changed.

I'd suggest you ask a new question, so more people see it, and tell us versions and what you're doing.

I'm currently trying it on the Wiki renderer.
