Weird behavior regarding creating/updating links

Hi,

It is possible to create a link without http(s) but its impossible to update it without http(s). That is confusing. Is http(s) mandatory? If so the documentation should say so and it shouldn’t allow a link creation without it.
Also is it possible to get something more explicit than a 500 error on that type of errors?
I lost like 2 hours on it :’(

Cheers

Would love to know more about this, so we can help. Where are you adding these links, and what do they refer to?

Hi @dipro-monday.com,

I’m adding these links in a link type column.
I’m able to create a link using 127.0.0.1 but i can’t update a link using 127.0.0.1 I have to add http://127.0.0.1 to be able to update it.
IMO it should work the same on creation and update.

Hey Mathieu,

That’s interesting! In the UI, the link column will add the http:// prefix if your link doesn’t already contain it – I suspect this behaviour is causing the issue. I’ll pass this along to our developers as a bug. In the meantime, I’d suggest using http:// as a prefix to all links to ensure they go through :slight_smile:
