I have to post a link to this website https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-app-security/tutorial-shadow-it as a reference, I am using in my documentation. I see in my template in overleaf I wrote in the file BIBeusflat2019.bib

 author =
 title =Discover and manage shadow IT in your network
 url ="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-app-security/tutorial-shadow-it"

but then when I compile the pdf I do not get the url as reference link in pdf . I am using a template here https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/eusflat-2019-template/jmqvcrhkqhgx

So how do I post a link to URL in this case?

1 Answer 1


Go the .cls file of the template

and change



\RequirePackage{graphicx, hyperref, url}

this adds the required packages. Now go to the .bib file an add your entry as

author = {Microsoft},
title = {Discover and manage shadow IT in your network},
howpublished = "\url{https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-app-security/tutorial-shadow-it}"

now you can cite this ref in your .tex using

  • Thanks I need to do similar things in this template overleaf.com/read/zscvvsxbqphw this is some custom template which is given to me by some one. Please tell in which file I need to do similar thing so that I can cite urls in my references.
