Hi,

I would like to know, is it possible to close executed report tab in launchpad through some script in design studio?

Please find following information,

Design Studio: 1.6 SP03

BI Platform: 4.2 SP03

Browser: IE11 version: 11.0.42

Thanks,

Darshil Shah

My first thought is this wouldn't happen in Design Studio itself but on the launchpad side, depending on your browser

I recommend updating your question to include browser, version/SP of Design Studio and version/SP of BI platform

Hi Darshil,

With standard Design Studio, there is no possibility to close a BI launchpad report tab via scripting. You might be able to achieve this through an SDK component that integrates with the BI Platform SDK but I think it's unlikely that there would be a suitable API method for closing a report tab anyway.

If you can provide an explanation of the business requirement perhaps we could suggest alternative approaches.

Regards,

Mustafa.

Hi Mustafa,

Thank you so much for your reply.

We are migrating WAD templates into design studio application.

However in WAD template we have implemented standard functionality which will close report tab in portal through button click event.

If possible, we want to achieve same through design studio application.

I am attaching required screen shots herewith.

Hi Darshil,

What you have described for WAD is a little different to what you have asked in your question. If I understand correctly, the CLOSE_WINDOW command is a standard WAD command that closes the entire browser window and not just the report tab, which is what you are asking in your question.

Either way, closing the browser window or BI launchpad report tab is not supported by Design Studio scripting. The only possibility would be to investigate developing an SDK component to try to achieve this.

Regards,

Mustafa.
