Hello every one,
I have one question regarding links in new ux.
I read the release notes for 15.6
Tip: Because the raw URLs use dynamic variables, you can copy and paste them to multiple projects or use the same links in blueprints for consistency among all your projects. Hover over a link to see the resolved URL.
In the tip I understood that links could be configured in the blueprint?
Could someone show us how? Thanks very much
The links can be configured in blueprint, hope this document will help https://docops.ca.com/ca-ppm/15-6/en/using/getting-started-with-the-new-user-experience/new-user-experience-administration-and-configuration/new-user-experience-configure-blueprints-for-projects-and-investments
We will try to come up with some videos on this too.
thanks .. if I read the page .. you mean with external links the channels?
But my question is related to the "Links" Page. Is this page also configurable via blueprint?
Yes everything is part of Blueprint only
what do you mean? I could configure links? Or just channels?
I had a similar concern as well. I couldn't configure links through blueprints.
So, here is what I did.
I now see that everytime a project is created from the Project Template, the links are indeed copied over. So, this works for me.
The documentation isn't clear on configuring links through blueprints. There are guidelines around channels only. So, would love to see if there is a way to configure links on a blueprint directly (would be a very useful feature if it exists). Else, I would have to create links on all templates (if I would like them to be copied over to the project).
Do let me know if my suggested workaround worked for you.
Just a quick add - I had to first create the project, add the links in the New UI and then mark it as a template.
So, here are revised set of steps:
Cool! It works as described
Excellent feedback Debroop, thank you. I edited the docops topic to make it more clear. You are indeed correct. The CHANNEL modules in blueprints support direct links (Channel URLs) added by admins for users to view dynamic targets without leaving the current Project page. And the LINKS module in blueprints supports reuse of dynamic links in one or more templates that propagate to all derivative projects.
