How to create free text custom field to include user picker (using @) and hyperlinks to other issues

Hi 

 

I am trying to add a field to issues that is a free text.

I would like also to mention other Jira users in the text that will be identified by Jira (and the users will be suggested), that user will get a notification.

plus I would like to paste other issues URL and it will be identified.

 

How can I do that?

 

Thanks,

Hi @Rony Len

The field "Text Field (multi-line)" will be able to accomplish this.

You do need to ensure that field has a wiki-style renderer applied. To achieve this:

  • Add the custom field
  • In the Issues section of Admin, go to Field Configurations
  • Locate a field configuration linked to your project and select it
  • Against the new field, click the word Renderers
  • Change it to Wiki Style Renderer
  • Repeat for all configurations for other projects requiring this

Quick follow up - when I add a user using @ - how can I configure that a notification will be sent to that person?

Hi @Rony Len

It sends notifications for @ mentions by default - so when you mention a user, they should get an email.
