Hi all,

From time to time I’m receiving questions in regards to linking to specific SAP UX Explorer content.

So here comes some assistance in case you want to link from your documents or pages to SAP UX Explorer.

Of course, where ever you are within the UX Explorer you could copy and paste the current URL. Nevertheless, you might be interested in how the URLs are generated or in specific ID tables.

Links to topics

You can directly link to a topic in SAP UX Explorer like this:

https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=38

(This example links to SAP NetWeaver Business Client for Desktop)

The format of these links is:

https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=<ID>

You can review our published topics document (snapshot) that lists all topics currently in our database including their ID. All these IDs remain stable and will typically not be removed. As such, this list could even be used for any purposes where you need a mapping to content on your site.

Deep links to content inside topics

As you know, the different content types like features, values, screenshots, documents are visualized within tiles (actually we call them technically “facets”).

You can directly link to a specific facet in SAP UX Explorer like this:

https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=38#!/facet/2

(This example links to the features facet of SAP NetWeaver Business Client for Desktop)

The format of these links is:

https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=38#!/facet/<FacedID>

The following list provides all (currently) relevant facets and their IDs:

SAP UX Explorer displays a facet only, if there is content maintained. As a result, there might be situations where you accidentally link to an empty facet. In this case the UX Explorer automatically displays the first available facet with maintained content. This means you won’t generate any dead links by accident.

Example:

If you look at https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=104 you will see that the topic landing pages has not features facet. If you now link to the features FacetID 2 as

https://uxexplorer.hana.ondemand.com/_item.html?id=104#!/facet/2 the UX Explorer will display the screenshots facet, as this is the first available facet.

I hope this helps.

All the best,

JJ
