How do I allow URLs that do not start with http in issue descriptions?

I would like [Alias|myprotocol://some/url/here] to be recognized as a link in a JIRA issue description (JIRA v6.3.6) but unfortunately it only works if I use "http" or "https"

I believe that you can enable the HTML module for the wiki renderer: and then switch the description field to use the wiki render: and then do something like:

{html}<a href="test://">test</a>{html}
