How can we make a field wich will be automatically transformed into a link.

 How can we make a field wich will be automatically transformed into a link after filling?

For example I have a link mask like 'http://ggg.com/xdf1111' where four last numbers is the value of the field.

I need to have a field, where I input these numbers 1111 or 2222 e.t.c. I want to see on issue screen this value. But the field must be clickable and lead to  http://ggg.com/xdf1111 or http://ggg.com/xdf2222 depending on it's value (1111 or 2222).

Is it possible?

Target: to integrate JIRA with the tasks in another system.

if this field will be filled only with URL's you can use "URL field". Did you try?

"Select Administration -> Issues -> Fields -> Custom Fields -> Add Custom Field , select the URL field type and click Next"

No, not just URL. User should input a value like 1111 and get a clicckable "1111" on the screen, which lead to a url http://ggg.com/xdf?entityid=1111. I mean that a user don't input a url, it must be like a concatenation between url mask and user's input.

Well I understood. I think you must to create your own template. But there's an workaround, E.g. There is a workflow transition screen with a field that user will input only a value like "1111" and in a postfunction you concatenate your url "http://ggg.com/xdf"; + USER_INPUT and copy this value to a URL field. Hope it help. BR.
