2895482 - Is it possible to copy a report URL and add it in a Home Page custom tile as a shortcut

Symptom

Is it possible to copy a report URL (from the standard Reports favorite tile) and add it in a Home Page custom tile as a shortcut

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Reports favorite tile -> refer the KBA in See Also
  2. Pick one report and copy its URL
  3. Paste the URL in your browser and hit enter
  4. The report will open as expected
  5. Now go to Manage Home Page
  6. Create a custom tile and paste the same URL
  7. Make this custom tile active
  8. Go to your Home page and find the custom tile
  9. Open the custom tile and click on the URL
  10. The report will open as expected again
  11. Now log out from the instance and log in again
  12. Open the custom tile and click on the URL
  13. The report this time will not open and an error message will be displayed (e.g. The requested operation is not available)
  14. In case you share this custom tile to other users, they will receive the same error message

Cause

The report URLs are generated dynamically and are not unique. Therefore, its not possible to copy the URLs and use them as a shortcut.

Resolution

This is an expected behavior. In case you need a shortcut to a report in Home Page, please use the standard Reports tile.
