Doors Web Access Hyperlinks

Jose Miguel Ordax Cassa (2.4k4126100) | asked Nov 26 '12, 4:06 p.m.
Hello. I'm having problems adding hyper links as attributes within DWA interface (v1.5.0.1).

The problem is:
If I use a URL like:, DWA detects it as an hyper link and I can click on it and navigate without problems.
But if I use a URL like: or, DWA breaks the URL in two pieces: and :8080 or /path. So I can't navigate to the correct URL.

In the desktop client this is working perfectly. The problem appears just in DWA.

I tried also to use some DXL to insert RFT code in the attribute, but I get the same results.

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

 Hi Chemi,

This could be a defect. I see the same problem too. Best to report it to Support.
By the way, what link are you trying to update? If it is for one of the artifacts in another jazz based application, you could as well create it as a OSLC Type link, called Collaboration Links in DOORS. 
For example, if you would like to create a link to an RTC WI which is an Implementation Request, you could use implementedBy or implements link type. So, based on to which domain you intend to create a link to/from, you might want to read through the specs for that domain to know what type of links are supported and use them as appropriate.
Note - For the links to appear correctly within DOORS (it will appear as a small triangle at right-edge of the Main column, like any other DOORS Links, not as hyperlink) and be navigable, you'd have to add the other application as a provider in DOORS Database Properties (Remote Services tab).

Hope that helps.

We need a regular URL to a Java Servlet... not OSLC Link.
