Goal

URL Public flex fields created in BPM workspace do not generate Hyperlinks. They just show the URL as ""text" and not as clickable hyperlinks.

Scenario for the issue:

> consider human task with a string data object and mapped it to the URL type Public Flex field created.
> Create a new View, for this Human Task, and choose the created flex field as a new column
> Fire an instance, see that in the new view created, the URL is not seen as a hyperlink but rather as text (Refer to attachment url_flex_field.jpg)

Steps to recreate:
1. Deploy a project where the input payload is of type string for example "testStr"
2. Create a Public URL Attribute Flex Field in BPM Workspace
3. Map the created flex field to the payload attribute(string data object- "testStr") of the human task
4. Create a new view for the human task, and add the URL attribute flex field as a column.
5. Fire an instance
6. See that in the new view created, the URL is not a hyperlink but is text (Refer to attachment url_flex_field.jpg)
