Search Highlighting Breaks Links In Endeca (Doc ID 1991352.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.1.3.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
The orange coloring given to notate search term matches on the Endeca search page breaks links configured in the result table portlet. There is a tag in the HTML (using Chrome developer tools) that is responsible.

As a workaround, use developer tools to remove this additional tag (and the CSS class that it employs), and the links work again.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect the link to work without modification.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Search for Fieldglass, and see the Description column link now highlighted does not properly link to the URL for the fieldglass site.
2. The HTML behind the display is the culprit
3. Remove the inner span (using Chrome developer tools), and the link works
NOTE: If there is no search performed, thus, no search match highlighting, everything works as expected.
