Working with Drill To Content

Drill to content allows you to set up content links on grid cells, rows, columns and member heading cells to enable end users to drill to reports, third-party documents in the Narrative Reporting library and custom URL links.

When an end user previews the report in HTML, they can drill into the content link and execute the specified target linked report (passing the POV where applicable), launch the third-party document, or launch the URL. See Drilling to Content, Drill Through, and Cell Attachments.

Note:

Drill to content is supported for Reports to use as either the source or target reports, and for snapshot reports to use as a target report.

Drill to content detail cannot be used to:

  • Drill to transactional detail

  • Define content links on a text box, image object or chart

  • Define content links as part of a conditional formatting condition

The server references for content links are maintained when using a report in another environment. For example, if you move a report from a Test to a Production pod, the Drill to Content links in the reports will point to the Production Pod reports. You do not have to change the drill to server.

If you insert a Reports that has drill to content links enabled in a grid as a reference doclet in a report package, the content links are disabled.
