URL Parameter to open a BW query in the portal in a new window/tab

Hello Experts,

We have a few BW reports in the portal environment where at the moment, the reports when you click on them executes in the portal content area.

Is there a way to change the URL of these reports in such a way that it opens in a new tab/window in the browser when you click on it? I am talking about any parameter like VARIABLE_SCREEN=X that forces the variable screen to pop up?

I know this property can be set at the iview level in the portal but here, we use a customized setup where the iview is based on a BW Template that has a java script code to automatically populate the role menus of the user who is logging into the portal from the back end BW system.

So, I wanted to check on the possibility of changing the URL in the backend BW system that causes the report to open in a new window when you click on it. Would be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks

Hi Arvind,

Please try 2412342 - How to call a Portal Role or iview directly via URL. You can append NavMode=3 (Quirks) or NavMode=10 (Standards) to the BW URL (once you are calling BW from a enterprise portal iview). This will force it to open in a new window

Best regards,

Nick

Hi Nick,

Below is the URL for one of the BW report that we have in the portal.

https://ciwdj.emea2.rdc.XXXXXX.com:8185/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/pcd!3aportal_content!2fcom.sap.pct!2fplatform_add_ons!2fcom.sap.ip.bi!2fiViews!2fcom.sap.ip.bi.bex?QUERY= &VARIABLE_SCREEN=X

I modified it like below with the NavMode &Emulate Parameter but this does not seem to be forcing the report to open in a new window:

https://ciwdj.emea2.rdc.XXXXXX.com:8185/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/pcd!3aportal_content!2fcom.sap.pct!2fplatform_add_ons!2fcom.sap.ip.bi!2fiViews!2fcom.sap.ip.bi.bex?QUERY= &VARIABLE_SCREEN=X&NavMode=3&sap-ie=EmulateIE8

Am I missing anything here?

Thanks

Hi Arvind,

I'm not too sure about BEx application. Test if the following URL does open in a new window (Should open UME Admin):
http://:/irj/portal?NavigationTarget=pcd:portal_content/administrator/super_admin/super_admin_role/com.sap.portal.user_administration/com.sap.portal.user_admin_wd_ws/com.sap.portal.umeAdminWD&NavMode=3&sap-ie=EmulateIE8

If it does then the issue is that the BEx iview is not taking the NavMode property from the URL

Best regards,

Nick
