Hyperlinks within a generated (doc) report

Zvika Mond (115) | asked Jan 13 '19, 5:14 a.m.

When I generate a report out of a module into a Word document, the hyperlinks in the module keep on pointing

to the DNG database, i.e. clicking on a hyperlink line opens a browser (Chrome) window and leads to the relevant
artifact. I would expect the report builder to generate hyperlink to the relevant line within the document. Can it be done? Thanx in advance.

Yes this can be done using RPE

We achieved it as follows

1) Ensure that a bookmark is added for any artifact that is linked to that contains the last part of the url of the artifact
about.substring(about.lastIndexOf("/") + 1);

2) When outputting the 'text' of the referencing requirement, remove the part of url that corresponds to the DOORS NG root
div.replace(new RegExp(_dngRoot, 'g'),"#");

where _dngRoot = about.substr(0, about.lastIndexOf("/")+1);

Any link within the document should work fine.

If the link is to an artifact in a different document, the hyperlink will not work.,  Instead it will just go to the top of the current document
