Hi @pritchsc ,

David from ALM Works here.  Just wanted to follow up here with my response to the other post.

For your scenario, we could use something like: 


If there's no appID in a field, the formula will just return the base URL.  To avoid this, you could incorporate an IF statement like this:


In this way, it will only show a value if there is an appID present.

Please give them a try and let me know if it helps!

Best Regards,

Hi David,

Thanks for the information - much appreicated. Almost there with the config. 

I now see the url correctly displayed, but would like to make the url hyperlink have a the appID as the reference that is displayed, which when clicked would direct the user to the url issue. 

I read that this could be acheived using some notation like [Atlassian|], but have not managed to make this work using a reference to a custom field. Is that possible? 

Was thinking this might look like: 

IF(appID,[concat("appID:"; appID)|concat("";appID))

Thanks, Scott.
