Running Jira Software 7.13.3
When I'm adding comments to a Jira issue, and I want to link to an external url, I'm always fighting the interface and I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm just missing something.
is this a bug? or am I just missing something? Thanks!
The url detection seems a little flawed still in v8.5.2 when saving.
If I paste the url the interface correctly detects it and allows me to enter a human readable version, however on save it reverts to the Markdown string representation.
Going into text mode doesn't fix it. The url I'm pasting contains a pair of  (amongst other valid url characters) and therefore it always reverts back to the plain text version regardless of what I do.
The url is from new relic and I've included a version below. To protect privacy the url has purposely been broken.
This issue is not solved as of Jira 8.5.0, part of a company installation which I'm currently using.
As the original post above states, you have to go into text mode, delete the extra brackets around the url, and then submit before the hyperlinked text displays properly in the comment.
Fix Version/s: 4.5.0, 4.4.2
Sharing a link from "Related knowledgebase articles" panel creates a comment with an incorrectly formatted link.
Specifically, the hostname is missing which causes the formatting to break.
