Deep Link for Canvas Reports

You can copy the URL from the Home Page Reports tile and use it as it is -> 2895482 - How to copy a Canvas report URL and add it in a Home Page custom tile as a shortcut or you can manually build the deep link following the steps below:

To set up a deep link to a Canvas report use the following format for the URL:

  1. https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/sf/inform?&reportId=<report identifier>&pageNo=<report page number>
  2. Replace salesdemo4.successfactors.com with the appropriate BizX application environment
  3. Replace <report identifier> with the "reportId" (refer next topic)
  4. Replace <report page number> with the page of the report you want to show.

So if we were to try to link to a report the URL would be:

To access page 1 of the report either of the below are valid:

- https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/sf/inform?&reportId=3d14b4c2-fee7-4489-9c1d-487551932838
- https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/sf/inform?&reportId=3d14b4c2-fee7-4489-9c1d-487551932838&pageNo=1
 
To access page 2 of the report:
 
- https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/sf/inform?&reportId=3d14b4c2-fee7-4489-9c1d-487551932838&pageNo=2

Canvas reportId

To get the Canvas reportId copy the URL (link address) from the Home Page Reports Tile -> same KBA as above 2895482

Example: https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com/sf/inform?reportId=94f28954-3143-414a-8857-1e05d1bd2bca&_s.crb=DLSwQl0dNWP1%252fRgsoFmSxu7Vzll4yD9KOwgcee2g1xU%253d

The reportId will be the characters between reportId= and & :

- reportId=94f28954-3143-414a-8857-1e05d1bd2bca&_s.crb=DLSwQl0dNWP1%252fRgsoFmSxu7Vzll4yD9KOwgcee2g1xU%253d

Everything after and including & can be removed.
