How to insert a working hyperlink to the custom text field in TestRail?


I have a custom text field named “Test Notes” and I want to insert a hyperlink into it that actually works as a hyperlink.

I was able to accomplish this in Preconditions field which is a default field in TestRail. However,

“[Google] (”, this doesn’t work for custom text fields in test cases.



It works for me if the Text Format on custom TextField is Markdown and the link is
Google, ( [name]_(link) - without whitespace)
not [Google] (


@rdu.shd how can you add text into the custom Markdown? I could add options…correct me?


I choose to Add new custom Field, Type is Text and in “Add Projects & Options” below i can configure which Text Format i need.
You can change that option on existing assignment.
