SSUrlFieldName Not Working For Links To PDFs - Need Web Friendly URL Instead of WebLayout Location (Doc ID 1569400.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.1.4.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Using SSUrlFieldName=UrlText to create a link and then populating it with the UrlText meta with a value for a .pdf file or other non-data file name, results in the weblayout location of the file being displayed in the end users browser URL.  The goal is to display the 'friendly' URL link for the customer, rather than the weblayout location.
