In the new issue view, in the issue description or in a multi-line text custom field, if you add a URL that is not http, https, ftp or mailto, this is not rendered as a link but it is shown as single text:
Everything works fine when using a single-line text field.
- In the new issue view, in an issue description enter a valid URL like, for example ftp://something.org
- See that after hitting enter, the string is correctly rendered as a link
- Now repeat the same test but enter any of the following URLs: ftps://something.com or gopher://something.org or integrity://something.org or smb://, file:// etc, and hit enter.
All the URLs are correctly rendered as links
The URLs are rendered as simple text strings and are not clickable.
However, by using the markdown syntax using less common protocols like for example gopher:// or integrity:// or nntp://, the text is rendered as a link, but it is creating a broken link that is missing the URL:
Another workaround, when applicable, is to use a single-line text field since everything is correctly rendered as a link in there.
