How to display an issue key as a link in a scripted field

Looking at the example given here

This is exactly what I need, but I would love if instead of listing the issuekeys I could list html links to these issues.

In the example the table is made up by adding keys like this:

# td(issue.key.toString())

resulting in something like this

# <td>TEST-4</td>

I would like to have as the result 

# <td><a href="https://.../TEST-4>TEST-4</a></td>


td("<a href=\"https://../browse/${issue.key.toString()}\">${issue.key.toString()}</a>")

does not help..


Any suggestions?

Change the scripted field template type from "HTML" to "Text Field (multi-line)"

Copy this exactly to your scripted field and it will work for you.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def baseurl = ComponentAccessor.getApplicationProperties().getString("jira.baseurl");

"<td><a href='${baseurl}/browse/${issue}'>${issue}</a></td>"

 In order to show in a table just add some html as string to the scripted field

Thanks Nir,

I am new to this scripting language, but your answer helped me find the solution.

The final result in my script looks like this (and it seems to work fine):

def mystring = "<html>\n" +
"<head>\n" +
"<style>\n" +
"table, th, td {\n" +
" border: 1px solid black;\n" +
" border-collapse: collapse;\n" +
"}\n" +
"th, td {\n" +
" padding: 5px;\n" +
" text-align: left; \n" +
"}\n" +
"</style>\n" +
"</head>\n" +
"<body>\n" +
"\n" +
"<table>\n" +
" <tr>\n"+
" <th>Issue Key</th>\n" +
" <th>Summary</th>\n" +
" <th>Status</th>\n" +
" </tr>\n"

results.getIssues().each {documentIssue ->
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(
mystring += " <tr>\n"
mystring += " <td><a href='${baseurl}/browse/${issue.key}'>${issue.key}</a></td>\n"
mystring += " <td>${issue.summary}</td>\n"
mystring += " <td>${issue.status.getName()}</td>\n"
mystring += " </tr>\n"

mystring += "</table>\n</body>\n</html>"

return mystring

For reference the code I had (based upon an example) looked like this:"text/css",
#scriptField, #scriptField *{
border: 1px solid black;

border-collapse: collapse;

results.getIssues().each {documentIssue ->
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(

return (writer.toString())
Like Nir Haimov likes this

Hello @Nir Haimov : Do you know if I can use a similar script to create a field to display a filter as a link? What I really want is to display specific filters as link on my dashboard. (Similar to what fav filter gadget already does: except that this is not all my fav filter)..
