On the new issue view, whenever you paste a link on the Description or comment field, Jira initiates a Smart Link that will attempt to preview this link. It shows the below link "Connect to preview link"
Allow an option to be able to disable the Smart link by providing a "turn off/on" Smart link button, either on the Instance as a whole or on per Issue basis.
Note: Current workarounds only apply when creating a smart link. As a user viewing a smart link there is no current workaround.
In order to remove the Smart link from rendering on the new issue view.
- Paste the Google link for example, once it renders to preview the link
- Press Ctrl + Z (Windows) or Cmd + Z (MacOS) (this will revert the link to a normal blue link)
- When inserting the link, be sure to use http:// instead of [https://|https:]. The Smart Card feature will not be activated, and upon visiting the URL, it will automatically redirect to https:// for these services.
