Note:Index/Key parameters are used for BW documents. User should manually enter Prompts/Variables parameter in the OpenDoc URL, because these parameters will not get generated in the open doc link of Lumira document.



Full and Part mode


  • Full mode:

User should be able to be taken to Story/Page/Bookmark if the parameter is mentioned in the open doc URL, but using full mode options he would be able to navigate to other stories/pages/bookmarks. Save bookmark and set as default for bookmark is enabled in full mode option.

But the document actions should be enabled/disabled depending on document-level rights of the user.

By default once you generate open document link the ReportMode is set as “Full”


  • Part Mode:

User can specify the required parameters in the Open document URL to view only particular Story/Page/Bookmark by setting the option “ReportMode=Part” in the generated Open document Link

    1. If the user provides only the Document as part mode parameter, then user will able to switch between stories, navigate between pages, switch between bookmarks and apply filters.
    2. If user provides only the Document and Story as part mode parameter, then user will not be able to switch between stories, would be able to navigate to pages or switch between bookmarks and apply filters
    3. If user provides only the Document, Story and Page as part mode parameter, then user will not be able to switch between stories or navigate to pages. User can switch between bookmarks and apply filters
    4. If user provides all the parameter in part mode such as Document, Story, Page and Bookmark. User will not be able to switch between bookmarks or stories or navigate between pages, but user can apply filters.


Note: For user using part mode parameter all the Document actions are hidden and Bookmark actions such as set as default and save bookmark are disabled.

If the User embeds the URL in the Hyperlink and wants to open the document using Open document URL in the same or new window then the below parameter is used.

      Very good post thank you.


      Input parameters works fine, but I also need to pass some dimensions filters.

      Do you know if it is possible via URL ?

      Best regards,

      BW Offline: Open doc URL should have Variable description for the prompt to get applied. We  need to give only lsS  as it shows only text in the chart. Example: Austin.

      BW Online/Live: Open doc URL should have Variable Techinal name in the URL for the prompt to get applied. Make sure you give both lsS and lsI, as it shows both index and text in the chart Example: (6|Austin).
