Hiding Hyperlinks in Crystal



I have created several Crystal Reports XI R2 that contain summary fields in them that, when clicked on, are hyperlinked to child reports using OpenDocument.jsp. The hyperlink in the parent report also includes parameters, including a workgroup name, to be passed to the child report. It all works fine.

When I publish the reports in BOXI, and the parent report runs, if I right click on the hyperlinked summary field in my browser and choose properties, I can see the full URL in clear text that links to the child report, including all the passed parameters.

My question is, how do I hide or encrypt the full URL so that the end user cannot see them? With them being visible, all a savvy user has to do is copy the URL into the browser address bar, change the workgroup parameter value, and they can see another workgroup's data.

I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I thought it would be the place to start.

Any ideas?
