[SOLVED] WF8 Report URL
 Login/Join
 
Member

Good morning. We have some reports that are called from within a .net application using a URL string containing parameters. The WF 7 URL looked like this for example: http://server/ibi_apps/WFServl...arris&CENTERNAME=ALL

I cannot figure out how this would now look in WF8. I tried a few things... and when I use this: https://servername/ibi_apps/ru...E=&COUNTYNAME=HARRIS

I receive an error that says "Path contains filtering characters not accepted by IBFS action"

Any help would be appreciated

Are these reports in the WebFOCUS repository or on the reporting server apps directory?

How do I determine this? They are listed underneath domains in the tree in app studio

Welcome to Focal Point I think you will find it a great place to get answers to your development questions.

You are using a correct URL for running a report that exists under a domain. I think your error is caused by the ?&CENTERNAME= it should be &CENTERNAME=ALL

Your url has two question marks in it.

Like highlander, there can only be one. Please remove the second one.

https://servername/ibi_apps/run.bip?BIP_REQUEST_TYPE=BIP_LAUNCH&BIP_folder=IBFS%253A%252FWFC%252FRepository%252FCommunityCenters%252F&BIP_item=masterlist.fex?&CENTERNAME=&COUNTYNAME=HARRIS
