Resolution:Fixed

Description

Idea is to allow user to input some value, and it will be seen in readonly mode as external link.
When defining the CustomField, we also input an URL prefix.
This will allow to make strong links to external ressources and do query/stats on them.

This external resources may be other Ticket/TaskMgmt system, wiki, or whatever.

Example for Confluence wiki
URLPrefix = "http://wiki.company.com/display/space/" and displayed link will just add the field value to the prefix URL => "http://wiki.company.com/display/space/somewikipage"

note: having such feature in markup will also be great (will create another Feature query for that), ex:

"Check This":mywiki:somewikipage => <a href='http://wiki.company.com/display/space/somewikipage'>Check This</a>

Nice Feature +1.

A custom field of type "link" would be an easy alternative!

+1. This is very useful for 1 case. We put URL for local resources on tickets as they are applicable. Now, if the server path moves - solution such as this has a great value.

+1, just need this to link Redmine issues to Zendesk tickets
In custom field config, there should be:
  • Open links in a new window - So the admin can select behavirour
  • Prefix - it is meaned as "prefilled vlue"?
  • Protocols - not sure if needed to specify allowed protocls, maybe this is too much....
  • Display as (Select):
    • URL only - URL is displayed in ticket
    • Description - + edit text here, like all URLS will have title "Open related ticket in Zendsek"
    • Desciption per ticket - each ticket's URL can have it's own title (display as)

how does it work exactly? if i put a URL, it just links to that URL, it doesn't act as prefix at all. 2.5.1 here.
