Customized slack messages with links

I would like some tips on how to add a link to the GitHub commit in the message sent using the slack/status step. However, it appears that slack no longer supports markdown-formatted links. It would be most useful for us if the slack status messages resembled this:


Here is my non-working attempt to achieve this with the slack orb:

version: 2.1
  aws-cli: circleci/aws-cli@1.1.0
  slack: circleci/slack@3.4.2

    executor: aws-cli/default
      - checkout
      - run:
          name: Test the things
          command: exit 0
      - slack/status:
          channel: $SLACK_CHANNEL
          failure_message: "Failure: build [$CIRCLE_BUILD_NUM]($CIRCLE_BUILD_URL) of [<<pipeline.git.branch>>](<<pipeline.project.git_url>>/tree/<<pipeline.git.branch>>) _($CIRCLE_USERNAME)_"
          success_message: "Success: build [$CIRCLE_BUILD_NUM]($CIRCLE_BUILD_URL) of [<<pipeline.git.branch>>](<<pipeline.project.git_url>>/tree/<<pipeline.git.branch>>) _($CIRCLE_USERNAME)_"

Here’s another example of a format that would work for us.
