When I export any out of box report , Purchase Order Details report , vendor column has hyperlink, it displays fine when viewed in Birt Viewer, but when I export in pdf it does not show as hyperlink to click. It works fine inside Birt Designer, problem arises in Maximo when I export to pdf or excel…etc. Anybody please suggest.

Hi,

I’ve got the same problem with my custom reports. Is there any option in BIRT Designer or in system properties on maximo that specifies whether the hyperlink gets exported? Or is it maybe Adobe Reader’s fault that it’s not working?

Did somebody have the same problem and was able to figure it out?

I have found a workaround, it’s not ideal but it’s still more comfortable than generating the report over and over again. It’ll have to do for now.
Instead of exporting the report it is possible to print it to html and then save the page to file so it can be viewed in a browser.

We are running into this same bug, but ONLY When the REPORTS are SCHEDULED to be EMAILED & SENT, the hyperlinks are broken (the hand is there, but they can’t link to anything). 

When the reports run immediately, the reports’ hyperlinks seem to work. 

We have OOTB reports & BIRT Imported reports where the report runs fine with functioning hyperlinks immediately. But when it is scheduled, the hyperlinks within the report no longer function after the report has been emailed (In PDF or .xlsx). The Hyperlinks are to WOs themselves or to WO details for “Open WOs & PM” OOTB Report, or to Asset Details for the “Asset Availability” OOTB report)

We are in Maximo 7.6.1.2 with first iFix – Saas Flex version

Any solutions or ideas of where to look to solve the problem?
