Is there an option to put clickable links in the checkbox custom field?

Is there an option to put clickable links in the checkbox custom field?

I added a link as an option in the checkbox field but it is not clickable.

I found an answer to this.  You can utilize standard HTML in the field option text but you need to enable it in the admin settings as it defaults to off for security concerns.

So it would look like this

<a href="http://www.example.com/jirahelp/fieldhelp.html">get help</a>

See: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver087/configuring-jira-application-options-998872637.html and look at 

  1. Choose  > System
  2. Select General Configuration to open the Administration page. 
  3. Click the Edit Settings button to edit the three sections as described below:

"Enable HTML in custom field descriptions and list item values"
