Using an Anchor Tag Syntax Is Not Working In Open UI Object Manager, Calculated Field (Doc ID 1568144.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 8.1.1.9 [23016] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When using a calculated field to build an HTML Anchor, the following calculated value is working in Siebel HI, but is not working in Open UI:
Test Case:

Added Field AATest to Service Request BC with the following attributes:

Name -  AATest
Calculated = Checked
Calculated Value = IIF([Abstract] IS NOT NULL ,"<A href='http://jquery.com?AATest=" + [Abstract] +"' target=_blank>" + "Track" + "</A>" , "")
Type = DTYPE_TEXT

Added AATest to the Service Request Detail Applet with the following values:

Name - AATest
Caption - String Override - AATest
Field - AATest
Field Retrieval Type - Field Data
HTML Display Mode - DontENcodeData
HTML Type - URL
Field Type - BC Field

Compiled these changes

In HI, this results in a field value of "Track", and the link in the lower left of the browser as http://jquery.com?AATest=aaa.

But in Open UI, the field value is showing up and includes the Anchor Tag, instead of just implementing the Anchor Tag.
