URLs in the environment field

If I enter a few short URLs in the environment field, they become hyperlinks. However, if I enter more than a few URLs in the same field, no hyperlink is added to any of the URLs. When this happens, all the lines entered into the environment field are merged and shown in a single line.

Is there a way to make multiple URLs in the environment field to have hyperlinks?

The field "shrinks" and stops rendering wikistyle if it's too big; If you press the arrow on the left, it will expand and your links will become active again. It's just the way the field works.

I voted on it myself.

You can use wiki format, use [] for a URL.

For example:


[http://www.go2group.com] [http://www.google.com]

Thanks for your answer. Your example works for me, but as I wrote in my question, the problem occurs when there are more than a few URLs (or fewer with longer URLs). For example, if I change one of the URL in your example to the URL of this post (which is https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/17441768/urls-in-the-environment-field), the problem occurs.

The screenshot below is what I actually see.Snap1.png
