URL Redirection in 14.2

  • 1.  URL Redirection in 14.2

    Posted 09-30-2015 08:22 PM

    hi,

    in v12 and v13, the CA Services supplied javascript script "pretty display of urls" could be put in an HTML portlet on a specified portlet page, which allowed a user to be redirected to a desired page by clicking on an column entry in an NSQL portlet (by associating a link to the portlet page with the portlet's column).  We used this feature extensively for:

    1. displaying the contents of an attachment

    2. displaying a required page

     

    In 14.2, this no longer works.  For example, clicking on a column entry in one portlet results in

    (v13.2), "#action:url_redirection&go2url=/niku/nu#action:odf.gm_profile_cvProperties&odf_code=gm_profile_cv&odf_view=gm_profile_cv.p_personal_details&id=5010024"

    (14.2), "javascript:navigateToTarget( 'mnp', 'page_5659002', 'url_redirection%26go2url%3D%2Fniku%2Fnu%23action%3Aodf.gm_profile_cvProperties%26odf_code%3Dgm_profile_cv%26odf_view%3Dgm_profile_cv.p_personal_details%26id%3D5010024' )"

     

    In 14.2, the portlet page still gets called, and the javascript gets executed, but crashes.

     

    Does anyone know how to enable URL redirection in 14.2.0.5

     

    Thanks

    Chris

    Is there any error message that you see in the app-ca.log ?

    hi,

     

    no - nothing in the log.  I've managed to stop the crash (and associated error dialog box), but the redirection isn't happening.  If you're familiar with the script, "go2url" isn't being found in the incoming URL

    the resolution is to ensure the field in the user portlet that references the link does not have "open as pop-up" set

     

    thanks James!

    Is this resolution working for anyone? I'm having this issue in our system, but changing the field to turn off "pop-up" didn't fix it. It opens a second tab for the URL Redirect, but it just loads a "Error occurred, contact system administrator"

    Hi

     

    In 14.2 I have used the following HTML portlet for redirection & it seems to works well

     

     

     

    <html>

    <p/>

    <p><font size=3>Redirecting... </font></p>

    <p/>

    </html>

    <script language="JavaScript1.2">

    var url = window.document.URL;

    var go2url_loc = url.indexOf('go2url=');

    var go2url = url.substring(go2url_loc + 7);

    window.history.back();

    window.open(go2url, '_blank');

    </script>

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for this.  It seems I still need to have the “open as popup” field unset
