Does Maximo application contain any reports that are linked by (or can be invoked from) a URL?
Yes, Maximo application contains numerous out-of-the-box (OOB) reports that are imported automatically, once Maximo.ear file is deployed..
A couple of examples of such reports are:
1)In Work Order Tracking application - launch a Work Order List report to run immediately, you will see that it displays Work Order/s that appear to be underlined (or are URLs):
The underlined Work Orders can be clicked on to invoke the Work Order Details report:
2)in Job Plans application - launch a Job Plan List report to run immediately, you will see that it displays Job Plan/s that appear to be underlined (or are URLs):
The underlined Job Plan/s can be clicked on to invoke the Job Plan Details report:
This functionality is often requested by clients and it can be mimicked directly. The user will need to have a working version of the Birt Designer installed, open any such linked OOB report/s in the designer, and this will grant the user direct access to the code that can be used in customizing reports.
