I have done some searching and have not been successful in getting this to work. Most of the examples assume you will be providing the base url and appending the value. In this case, I have a column that contains an absolute URL (https://...) and have added the following to my simple XML, but when I click on it, it prepends the Splunk URL
I don't think there is a native method to so (redirect to absolute URL available in field value). There are some workarounds (see the first and last answer) here. Other option is to remove https:// in the field value, so that wen the link module appends its https://, its a valid URL.
