Hyperlinks from Atlas attributes?

Contributor

Are there any plans, or maybe already existing features, that allow working hyperlinks in
attributes? I'm asking this because I would link from Atlas to the official Mavim data catalog
of our company. Now I can put the URL in the attribute, but it will still be a string of course.

ATLAS-2162 addressed this requirement - to add hyperlink based on attribute value. This should be available since HDP-2.6.3.

We're using HDP-2.6.5. This type doesn't appear in the GUI when creating tags. Does is have to be created via the REST API? If so, is there any documentation on this?

So I've read somewhere (can't seem to find the link anymore) that if you put a URL in an attribute with type string, Atlas recognises it and and makes it into a hyperlink. And as far as I was able to understand the code in the patch, it seems to work that way on strings starting with ftp://, http:// and https://. I've tried creating an attribute and unfortunately, the link is unclickable.

So it does not seem to work. Is my interpretation wrong? Should it work some other way?
