Slack: /here command strips out hyperlinked text

Reported by: annezazu Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: Slack & IRC Keywords:


If you use the /here command, any hyperlinked text will be stripped of the link. However, if you simply list out the URL rather than hyperlinking text, the link remains in tact. You can see an example of this breaking here (each item originally as hyperlinked in the list):

This is unfortunately a shortcoming of Slack, I've tried with both slash commands attached to a Slack App, and slack's own slash commands app.

Slack slash commands do not provide the hyperlink data, despite the documentation suggesting it does.

For example, I would expect a linked 'Hello World' to come through to us as /here <https://example.com|Hello World>, but instead we see it as /here Hello World.
If I include formatting, such as code tags, that comes through:

/here Hello `code` World

I'm filing a bug with slack, I'll see if there's anything w're doing wrong.
