Using an alternative URL for a Lawson BackOffice report

Use this procedure to change a RW100 Lawson BackOffice report to have an alternative drill around instead of using RW80 in the Lawson BackOffice application. Before you perform this procedure, you must:

  • Identify the URL that you want to execute as a replacement to Lawson Form RW80.
  • Modify the Lawson Data connection data source to have an alternative URL.
  1. Open the Tools dashboard and select Report Administration. The Reporting Services Administration screen is displayed.
  2. Select Server Administration > Maintain Data Sources. The Maintain Data Sources screen is displayed.
  3. Identify the Lawson Data Connection data source that you want to have an alternative drill around for RW100 reports.
    Note: These report types are identified as LXR report types in My Reports.
  4. Click the Lawson Data Connection data source name to edit the RW100 alternative URL.
  5. Specify the URL to use in the RW100 Alternative URL field.
    Note: If you leave the field blank, the RW100 PDF file will open RW80. You must specify a value for the RW100 PDF file to open the alternate URL.
  6. Click Save
  7. View any RW100 Lawson BackOffice report tied to that data source to test the alternative URL.
