Adding the URL property to the issues cube?


I understand I can left click and then click on “Go to source” when working with the issue cube, however I would like to be able to create an additional column with a clickable URL in it. I have found some information which at first seemed to be helpful, but I’m struggling to put it all together. Here is what I found:

I also found the following which talks about the URL property:

My desired outcome: To add an extra column to the issues cube which will give a clickable URL instead of the user having to left click and then click on “Go to Source”.

TIA for the help.


There is a formatting option Markdown, that allows creating clickable URLs.

For example, if you want to show the issue link in the report as a clickable URL, you can define a new calculated measure “Issue link” in Measures, and change the formatting to Markdown. The expression for constructing the issue URL might be like this:

 CASE WHEN [Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember <> [Issue].CurrentHierarchy.DefaultMember
 "[go to Jira "||[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.Key||"]("||
