Inserting web links and object links (requirement, bug, task, text documents) into task descriptions

When editing task descriptions, web links and object links may be added. Xebrio objects that can be added are requirements, bugs, tasks, and text documents. Open the editor by clicking on the Editedit.svg button, and click the attachment icon attachment.svg. Select either Insert Web Link or Insert Object Link from the dropdown.


When adding an object link, choose Insert Object Link. Select the object type to link in the dropdown. Only one type of object may be added at a time. Click on the box next to the desired objects to link, and then click Insert to add them as links in the task description. The display text of the object may be edited once it has been added to the description. When still in edit mode, click on the object to open up the field where the display text may be edited. 


When adding a web link, choose Insert Web Link. Enter in the web address under the Link field, and the enter the desired text to display for that link under the Display Text field. To view the link before saving, click the Go To Link button to open the page in a new tab. 


Users must have project permissions to view and edit in the tasks module.  If a user does not have permissions to view the object, they will be directed to an Access Denied page when it is clicked in the description. Depending on the settings of the user's project permissions, they may be able to view and add all the project objects or just subsets. Users added to a specific task as a watcher or assignee will be able to view it.
