Hi, When I give PCHOLD my PDF file format, it calls WFSERVLET (say http://172.25.35.181/ibi_apps/...PG_File=cutnupki.pdf )? How does WFServlet call occur internally and from where do we pass value for PG_File? Can someone explain this functionality? Will WFservlet be called for PPT format also?
Thanks, Suji.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,
How the servlet works? You'd better be calling IBI for that piece of info. You probably need to ask a more specific question, as dhagen says, to let us know exactly what you're looking for. The URL you posted is simply the redirect for a generated PDF report. It will not cause a fex to be executed. When redirection is used (as specified in the client configuration) the file is generated and stored on the webserver and then a browser is sent to that location. You can turn redirection on or off for each specific type of output file. I believe that that default is on for all types.
If you're wanting to point to an existing saved report, follow Ginny's direction. If you're wanting to know how to form a URL to execute a fex, try creating a simple report and publish it. Then you can see the layout of the call. There are also numerous posts on the topic.
