Live link to Confluence in JIRA Field Label

Michele Grimm Dec 19, 2012

I would like to create a "live link" (a clickable link) to a Confluence page, within a JIRA Field Label. Can it be done?

The custom field Description (which is rendered under the custom field) supports html & javascript.

I just did a quick test using the following in the Description of a new custom field and it worked fine (was clickable):

<a href="http://www.glintech.com">CLICK ME!</a>

Is that what you mean?

This worked like a charm and I was even able to add target="_blank" to get the link to open in a separate page. Awesome.

 know this question was asked a long time ago, I've tried this solution but was unable to replicate it, is it still possible to render a field description and inject HTML or Javascript?
