external links with custom protocol handler

We have a custom protocol handler to allow links to a legacy trouble ticket system. But links to references to psc:///this/that are not rendered as hyperlink. Just changing the protocol to http works.
protocol psc: [that|psc:///this/that] renders as [that|psc:///this/that]
protocol http: [that|http:///this/that] renders as that

The link macro supports http(s) only.

Since you are looking to store a value, why not create a custom field and store the value there? You can also create a new renderer for that field.

Is there a plan to support other protocols like notes in the future?

some other than http are already working (e.g. ftp )

Best regards,
