field_decorations and ref_contributions attribute does not work for URL field


Description

The field_decorations and ref_contributions field attributes do not working for URL field. They work for string fields.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Macro UI. Name the macro "testURL" and add the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<j:jelly trim="false" xmlns:j="jelly:core" xmlns:g="glide" xmlns:j2="null" xmlns:g2="null">
<span>Testing</span>
</j:jelly>

2. Go to the incident form and create an URL field. Ensure the field is displayed in the incident form.
3. Go to the Dictionary and edit the url field, add the following attribute:
field_decorations=testURL
4. Save
5. Go to the incident table, the "Testing" word did not appear next to the URL field.

Expected behavior
The "Testing" word (UI Macro) appears next to the URL field.

Actual behavior
The "Testing" word did not appear next to the URL field. 

The same example works with string type fields.  

 

Workaround

This request is considered an Enhancement Request. URL field type is not supported for field_decorations or ref_contributions. Only the following support this behavior: reference field, date, date_time, duration, boolean, choice, addon, time, phone number, number, and pick list.
