Hyperlinks in Lumira Stories

When creating a Lumira story there is often a need to link to additional information, this may be an external website or via open document links to other reports / stories that contain more detailed information or to other pages within the same story.

In Lumira you can do so by adding hyperlinks to text, images, pictograms and shapes in your story. After dragging an image, pictogram or shape into your board, infographic or report you will see a hyperlink option as part of your Image Properties settings. Within the text widget the same action is available.

Upon clicking on the hyperlink option a new window opens, here you can specify the URL you want to link to and whether the pages shall be open in a new window or in the same window.

While in this example I am linking to the Lumira tutorial site, you can also extend this further and link to your existing BI asserts such as WebI or Crystal Reports via the BI Open Document links or to other Lumira stories on Lumira Cloud or Lumira Server via their URL, your possibilities are endless.

Alternatively, you can specify another page in this story which you want to link this image to. By default, you are given a few options (such as first page, last page) for quick selection.

Note: As infographics allow to layer objects you can even add a transparent image on top of your chart and adding a link to a report that contains detail information about that particular chart point.

      This is a good option. However, the need for using a background image to do be able to add a hyperlink makes this less than optimal. It would be much more useful if we could just turn data values (or bars etc.) into hyperlinks.

      Hi Christina,

      Placing images as layers on infographics is very nice. Is it planned to add this feature to boards as well? I want to put a button image on a visualization to link to another page (as long as drill-downs are not working).

      Thanks in advance for your feedback.

      Best regards,

      Karsten

      Hi Christina

      Right-clicking on a Lumira Document in BI Launch Pad does not show the Document Link option. Wanted to check if it is possible to manually create a URL for a Lumira Document that can then be exposed in some web application?

      Hi Ravi,

      The 'Document Link' option is not available today, however would be coming soon. You can still manually create a link like you do for other contents and that should work for you.

      Any chance of implementing Drill Through in Lumira? Can I hyperlink any other lumira story and pass a value into it? I'm using Lumira 1.31.3
