[CASE-OPENED] Portal - homepage with hyperlink to other pages

Hi all,

Is there a way to have a initial page with links to other pages?

Like "home page" with links to the other pages in the portal.

Thanks,
Bruno

Yup, create an html page on the home page that has hyperlinks whose targets open the other Portal tabs. You will have to look at the source to find the ids of those tabs (don't forget about parent/child frames).

Do you have to go to separate pages or can the reports display in the same page (dynamically appearing based on selection)? That is much easier.

But how can I check the ids of the tab? Could you give any example.

Because I check the source and I dont know what to look for.

And if possible the example of the full hyperlink.

Thanks,
Bruno

Get the firebug plugin (firefox or chrome) and dig in to find the tab ids.

You will probably have your hyperlink actually call a javascript function that will .click() on the tab with has the id you want. you will have to look up that id manually using firebug and then hardcode it in your code.

I have the id from the tabs:
 <div style="-moz-user-select: none; white-space: nowrap; -moz-user-focus: ignore; text-align: left; left: 0px; top: 0.5px;" tabindex="-1" 
class="bi-button-label bip-navigation-button bip-elem-NB-HXXG1T4514N9EGLF52784 "
 id="NBL-HXXG1T4527FVS2V2H5043">Resumo Projecto</div>
 


but how can I call it?

ex: http://servername:8080/ibi_apps/portal/FirstPortal

BTW the id you showed above looks like the label for the div. You may actually need the id of the div that contains that label. You will just have to try it out.



EDIT: It would probably be even better to call the containing div ID (BiHBox-129) and then get the ID from its children (1 child is first page, second child is second page, etc.) That ID looks less likely to change than the "NBL-HXXG1T4527FVS2V2H5043" and then you can re-use the same code elsewhere. Looks like you are going to get a good lesson in HTML DOM and javascript DOM methods. The alternative is to open a NFR requesting a portal API with navigation and then wait.

I notice there is another similar issue :

*.html page call to a Tab/Page in the BIP (8.0)

And a case is created.

I was trying to do a workaround with building a page with tab container with all the pages separeted in tabs. But with that I realize a problem (or not) the security!
If I want to disable/hide a tab based on security permissions where do I do that?

Thanks.
