Text field as a link to open a record


Thanks in advance.
I have a external object in salesforce. ( Data for external object is coming from .Net services )
I have one Title (Text) field and one URl field.
I need to make that title fields as a hyperlink to open a record in salesforce.
Url field already is working as expected. if i click on url field it is opening a record same way i need to make for title field.
This title field is using in search layout.

Note: In search layout it should show only title. if i click that it should redirect to record.

Please let me know need more info.

Hi Siva,


Unfortunately,it is not possible to use the text fields as Hyperlink.However,you can create the title field as Formula field and use HYPERLINK to use it like the URL field.


Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,

Hi Shrisha,

Thanks for your reply.
Creating formula field is not possible in the external object. Do we have any other workaround to achieve this?
