We are using RTC 4.0.6.

I have requirement , where , we need to add attribtue which would contain links (URI) as the values.

requirement is also to make it clickable, so that it can be clicked from work-item form Editor itself.

Is there a 'link' or 'hyperlink' data type in RTC ?

You can for example use an attribute of type HTML. The general syntax is:

Sorry I had to put in an image, but the technology of this earthlings mix so much stuff together, that the result sometimes leaves something to be desired.

Thanks Ralph for quick help !

But it means that the attribute has text apart from just URL.
It may be required to put the whole string  in specific syntax everytime by users.

is there any easier way ?

You can paste a URL into e.g. the description or a text field or an HTML field and it will get converted and the link gets created. If you do that in the description or a comment, you also get a "Related artifact" link at the work item. Can it get easier?
