Issue/Introduction

  • Is it possible to add a filter criteria into a channel URL in New User Experience (UX) Blueprints?
  • Example: Filter on the Task list for a project in Classic that includes filtering automatically on a having a specific custom attribute’s value set to Yes? 

 

Environment

Release : 15.6, 15.6.1, 15.7, 15.7.1

Component : CA PPM SAAS STUDIO

Resolution

  • It's not possible to update the URL in a Channel to filter directly on results, as Channels are Iframe, so you cannot pass any parameter like a dynamic link in channels.
  • Channels will pull the functionality of Classic PPM into the New UX.
  • The options to filter on results in Channels:
  1. Change the default value in the filter on Classic side.
    • In the example above, this would be on the the task list from the Object->Task->View->Task Filter Layout->Fields
    • Change the default value for “the field to yes (or make other desired changes).
    • This would change the default task list filter in Classic as well
  2. Create a custom portlet on the dashboard page of the project that only filters on the specific tasks, then you can link the channels to that page instead
  3. Custom portlet outside of the project could also be used if the information doesn't have to be project specific - then the custom portlet could be used in a Channel
