Create Hyperlink to KM iView

Hello All,

I am working on EP6 SP9.

I have create a KM iView which points at a KM repository.

I need to create a hyperlink in ToolArea, such that when user would click on it, the KM iView details would open/accessible/visible.

The Output KM iView should open in a new screen.

I have tried the following steps for the same:

1. Changed the authentication scheme to '<i>anonymous</i>' while testing this hyperlink from a seperate html page. Assigned the target of hyperlink as <server details>/pcd!3aportal_content!2fRitu!2fTest_RelatedLinks!2fKnowledge_Hub <i>(Knowledge_Hub being the iView)</i>.

I would appreciate if you please help me solve this.

Awaiting Reply.

Thanks and Warm Regards,

Ritu

    Hi Ritu,

    If you want the link in your tool area, you can do one of the following:

    1. change the jsp of the tool area directly on the portalserver. The jsp is located in:

    <j2eehome>clusterserverservicesservlet_jspworkjspTempirjrootWEB-INFportalportalappscom.sap.portal.navigation.toolareajsp

    it is called toolAreaIView.jsp.

    if you just want to add a hyperlink and it shoul open in a new window then

    <a href="link to the iview" target="_blank">description</a>

    should work.

    2. Download the par file of the toolarea iview com.sap.portal.navigation.toolarea.par.bak from

    clusterserverservicesservlet_jspworkjspTempirjrootWEB-INFdeploymentpcd

    , update the jsp as in 1 and upload again as .par file.

    3. Same as 2, but upload as a custom named parfile, and change the default framework page to use the new parfile.

    Note that in case you use 1 or 2 your changes may be overwritten during an upgrade.

    By the way, you can create the url to the component using the urlgenerator service in the portal.

    If you use <a class="urLnk" href=... then your link will be rendered according to the portal theme. Of course, you can also use a htmlb Link...

    Hope this helps,

    Johan

    Ritu,

    only a stupid question: Why have you set the authscheme of your custom iview to "anonymous"? Please note, that anonymous KM access is at least problematic and only partly supported.

    Hi Ritu,

    Try this:

    <a href="PORTAL/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.navigation/documents/Public%20Documents/......... " target="_blank">Display Name of the Link</a>

    Yours,

    Yoav

      Hi Yoav,

      Firstly thanks for your reply.

      I tried doing the step you suggessted but it does not work.

      In the href path I gave the path of my folder (the one I created in KM). Now when I click on it, Im asked to login into Portal and the access goes to Home->Company and not to my folder.

      Is there some way by which this could be achieved...?

      Awaiting Reply.

      Thanks and Warm Regards,

      Ritu
