We have a few fex in MR that we want to be executable directly from a URL without the user having to log in to MR. I have scanned this forum about it, so I learned about setting the parameter IBMR_drill to 'RUNNID' or 'X,domain1/domain1.htm' in order to obtain that, but there is still a step missing due to the use of the HTML LAyout Painter. This is the scenario: we have built an html page with the painter and we have inserted it in a fex with the command -HTMLFORM; then we have built an URL that has IBMR_drill=X,...; when we launch this, no problem, we obtain the page without having to log in; but when we submit the fex, it asks us to log to MR; in the old version of the painter, it was easy to go in the html code, and add the parameter to the form that was created, but now(7.6.8) it creates an xml ibi_request and I don't know what to do about it. Is it still possible to modify the page created by the tool to add somewhere IBMR_drill, or maybe someone has some other suggestions to allow us to avoid to code the pages entirely from scratch?

Typically MR Reports are made available by being able to "Publish" a report. As you've likely noted, this functionality does not extend to being able to publish an HTML Launch page (Which is essentially what you're doing even if you're using a -HTMLFORM).
If this is functionality that you're looking for, I'd open a case with Techsupport and ask them to create a New Feature Request.
This is functionality that a number of people have asked about. The more people that open a case and specifically request it, the more likely it will be considered as an addition to the product.
You can tell the Technician to RDUP the case to 52652516.
With this said, it is possible to work around this limitation by manually editing the launch page so that the proper values are loaded when the launch page is actually executed.
(e.g. Add hidden input controls that pass a value for IBIMR_drill)
