Illegal access to the viewer, please use a valid url. when try to open WebI

Hi,

we use the URL BUTTON in Xcelsius and the openDocument.jsp to open a Detailed Report.

So the URL BUtton opens:

http://********:8080//OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?sIDType=ID&iDocID=3809&sWindow=New*

...the WebI is opened in a new Report, so that the Xcelsius is not closed.

If the setting for the URLButton within Xcelsius is ALSO "New Window"

--> Beneath the Xcelsius dashboard opens another Window with the WebI Report. Nevertheless, the Xcelsius report is initailzed again and the dashboards starts again and data is refreshed again.

--> How to sop the new Initialization?

If the setting for the URLButton within Xcelsius is "This Window"

--> Beneath the Xcelsius dashboard opens another Window with the following error:

_Illegal access to the viewer, please use a valid url. _

But the Xcelsius dashboard remains and is not initialized new like --> we want it.

If I use the parameter sWindow=Same, then the Xcelsius dashboard is always overwritten with the WebI Report what we don't want.

These are our findings. How can we resolve the error: _Illegal access to the viewer, please use a valid url. _ and why does it come up??

    Hi,

    Try removing the sWindow=xxx param from the URL you are using and instead let the Xcelsius URL Button open a new window and see if that works.

    Regards
