    Note: An updated version of the information below can be found here: AWI URLs

    There are unique URLs for many views in the Automic Web Interface. For example, the following format will take you directly to a particular object:

    https://awi-hostname/#pa/view/object-name

    It is also possible to construct a URL that will take you directly to a particular properties sheet of an object.

    https://awi-hostname/#pa/view/object-name&navigation=navigation-location

    The first part of the URL after the AWI host name specifies the perspective. There are several different perspectives.

     

    Perspective URL
    Administration https://awi-hostname/#administration
    Process Assembly https://awi-hostname/#pa
    Process Monitoring https://awi-hostname/#pm
    Service Catalog https://awi-hostname/#sc
    Dashboards https://awi-hostname/#home

     

     

    AWI tab AWI sub-tab navigation-location
    The default tab of the object type default
    General sheet.simpleoverview
    General Sync sheet.sync
    General Runtime sheet.runtime
    General Object Authorizations sheet.object.authorizations
    Attributes sheet.attributes
    Process sheet.script
    Process Pre-Process sheet.script_pre
    Process Post-Process sheet.script_post
    Output Output-Scan sheet.output_scan
    Variables & Prompts Variables sheet.variables
    Variables & Prompts Prompt Sets sheet.prompts
    Rollback sheet.rollback
    Version Management sheet.version
    Documentation Docu sheet.documentation.Docu
    Rapid Automation sheet.ra
    Console Event Event Process sheet.event.console.script
    DB Event Event Process sheet.event.db.script
    File Event Event Process sheet.event.file.script
    Time Event Event Process sheet.event.time.script


    Knowing this URL format, you can include links to specific AE objects in emails, web pages, and so on. These AWI deep links are most useful when combined with AWI URL parameters that specify the system & client, and that enable SSO.

    I just made a Quick Search bookmark in Firefox that I can use to go quickly to a particular AE object in a particular AE system.

    Location: https://awi-exp2/#pa/view/%s
    Keyword:
    exp2
    Description:
    Open an object in the EXP2 AE system via the AWI.

    Using this the keyword exp2, I can now go straight to the object UC_KDC_SETTINGS in our EXP2 AE system by typing this into the address bar in Firefox:
    exp2 UC_KDC_SETTINGS
    (This is related to an earlier discussion of mine, Firefox Quick Search bookmarks for searching Automic web pages.)

    If you are not already logged in, the AWI will prompt you to log in before displaying the object. If you want to display an object particular client, be sure that you are logged in to that client. I do not know a way to specify the client in the URL, but that would certainly be a useful capability.
    This turned out to be quite straightforward. If you set the parameter_login.enabled parameter in the AWI’s configuration.properties file to true, then you can specify the details of the the connection in the URL.
    https://<AWI >/#&system=ConnectionName&client=9999&name=MyUserName&department=Dept
    I imagine it’s possible to construct a URL that will take you directly to a particular object in a particular client.

    I copied much of the above information to the document AWI URLs.

    Earlier I posted a Quick Search URL for Firefox:
    [This] Quick Search bookmark in Firefox [can be used] to go quickly to a particular AE object in a particular AE system.
    Here is an Firefox Quick Search URL that includes the parameters required for automatic login using SSO. It works like a charm, and opens the object directly, even if I was not already logged in to the AWI.

    Location: https://awi-exp2.mycompany.com/#pa/view/%s&system=UC4_EXP2&client=0001&sso=yes&autologin=yes
    Keyword:
    exp2
    Description:
    Open an object in the EXP2 AE system via the AWI.

    Here’s how to construct a URL that will take you directly to a particular object in a particular client.
    https://awi-hostname/#pa/view/object-name&system=ConnectionName&client=9999&name=MyUserName&department=Dept
