Create Hyperlinks on Visualizations

You can add hyperlinks to charts with Pentaho Report Designer. A chart can link to three location types.

Location Type Description Generated Link Example
Pentaho Repository Creates a context link on the Pentaho server http://localhost:8080/pentaho//conte...ditor?command= open&solution=steel-wheels&path=analysis &action=Product%20Line%20Sales% 20Trend.xanayzer&line=Classic%20Cars.
URL Creates a link that goes to a defined URL http://www.myApplication.com/search?...&myLine=Trains.
Self Creates a link to a custom-built web application and refers back to itself as a link. This option is rarely used. N/A

Link locations depend on the chart type.

In the chart editor, you have several Chart Field options. Depending on the chart type, there are various internal chart fields that can be used by the link and are only available when used within the Edit Chart dialogue box. Go to Formula Editor > Toolbar to see these options.
