Open custom URL


Due to COVID-19, our team migrated from an analogue Kanban board to Trello. Now I'm looking for a way to open custom URLs. Every card has a title like "#1234 My ticket description". Since there is no Power-Up for our issue tracker, I need something to convert the number within the card title into a hyperlink pointing to https://ourserver/issue/1234.

Is there any built-in functionality within the free Trello to achieve this?

Thanks to all of you!

Are people opening cards and writing the the title like "#1234 my ticket" and you want to add a url to the card that points to "https://jira/1234"?  You could probably do this with a trigger in Butler:

Or do you want trello to call a webhook at a certain url (also could do that with Butler)?

@mu88 specifically the (AFAIK) undocumented regex pattern matching in Butler can come in handy here to make your pattern very specific so that it only matches cards starting with #1234 and not starting with #ABCD:

If you want to retroactively run this for all existing cards on a board this Trellinator script would do it:

Thank you all for your replies! Before trying all the mentioned ways, I'd like to know whether it is possible to add hyperlinks to card titles? Markdown doesn't seem to be supported. Do I have to introduce a custom field just for the URL?

@mu88 you can't put a hyperlink in a card title, but there's this Chrome extension that gives you a clickable link on the front of a card:
