Is there some way to manipulate the URL posted as part of the JIRA Capture environment?

Some of the URLs I run into during testing are long and ugly and blows out the "JIRA Capture Environment Information" section of the JIRA ticket. 

Ultimately what I'd like to do is put that url into something like a code block. Perhaps there is some way to achieve this by creating a new variable?

Hi Scott,

Fields URL, Browser, Operating System, Document Mode, User Agent, Screen Resolution - are custom fields, that added by JIRA Capture. These are not the same fields that are created by variables, therefore you can not change values by creating or changing variables.

Regarding the variables, this article nicely explains how to use this feature: Templates and Variables.
