Issue tracker: add WebUI hyperlink to ticket when creating branch
We are missing a two-way coupling between Plastic and the issue tracker (in our case Trac). If we have setup a Plastic WebUI, it would be nice if the Plastic issue tracker extension could add a WebUI hyperlink to the ticket comments when we create a branch from a ticket.
This should be doable for Trac at least, since the extension already adds a comment to the ticket when "Mark as open in issue tracker" is checked during branch creation?
It should only work if the webui is configured... uhm... maybe we should add some sort of custom field so that users can build extra info to pass to the issue tracker somehow.
Other option is to write your own extension: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/extensions/plastic-scm-version-control-task-and-issue-tracking-guide.shtml#WritingPlasticSCMcustomextensions and then be able to tweak it as you need :-)

Clarification: The hyperlink should lead to the branch history in the WebUI, and the WebUI base URL would need to be setup in Preferences for the issue tracker extension.
