Hello Gurus!

I want to add an URL (webdynpro application link) as hyper reference in the custom decision step task. I want the object to be available in the attachments list, and when I click the attachment I should be able to open up in the default browser configured in the system.

Hyperlinks in the text would be much easier, but here's a little hack to make the link appear as an attachment:

You will need a custom class (or BOR object if you really insist), and in bi_object~execute_default_method you can write code to launch the WD app or whatever else.

The link will always be a combination of your class name and whatever you return in the bi_object~default_attribute. So instantiate your object with whatever value you want in there and you're off.

Be aware that this may behave differently in the portal, UWL, Fiori or whatever other environments. This is why a simple hyperlink is usually better.

Hi Mike,

Simple <A HREF> Will work when the hyperlink text including the tag is statically available in the workflow. If you construct the URL's along with the body of the mail dynamically then the text is simply was troubling because the continuous text in body looks terrible. &CONT_MAILBODY[]&.

If I use with breaks &CONT_MAILBODY##& this will put <BR> tag after each line of link text.

Tried to do url as attachment but not helping.
