Error description

  • When running this kind of URL from a custom user program:
    http://serveraddress/wccommonservices/launch.jsp?wc_server=hostn
    ame&wc_template=TemplateName&wc_criteria=[["Criteria1","Equal","
    xx"]]&wc_layout=LayoutName&wc_action=search&wc_userid=XXXX&wc_pa
    ssword=Password
    fails with error:
         Impossible to make the search
         Details: Run again your search. If problem persists, close
         your WEB browser and connect again.
         If WEB browser closing doesn't solve problem, ask your
         system administrator to look into the IBM WEBi logs for
         problems linked to the application server, or restart the
         server.
    .
    Expecting result is to get the result of the search function
    with bypass of the logon screen.
    .
    Passing the same URL without wc_password parameter, shows the
    logon screen with field userid prefilled.

Problem summary

  • The URL to open IBM WEBi from a custom application does not
    produce search results when the URL contains a search action,
    user ID, and password. The issue occurs when the search action
    is processed before the user ID and password.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in WEBi 1.0.4 Fix Pack 3.
    In IBM WEBi Version 1.0.4 Fix Pack 3, the parameters in the URL
    to open IBM WEBi are processed in the correct order.
    

Temporary fix
