Copying instance link to the clipboard

Applies to version: 2020.1.x and above; author: Dawid Golonka



When working with WEBCON BPS, there is often a need to copy a link to an instance e.g. to send it to another person. If you work in full window mode, the instance can be copied from the URL field in the browser. Until now, the problem was with copying a link to the instance displayed in preview mode.

From version 2020.1.3. you can copy the link to the instance by using the button located in the upper right corner of the preview window.

Example of use

Moving from the report level to the instance displayed in the full window, the address bar will contain the full link along with the returnurl parameter:

Regardless of whether it is done from the instance preview window or the full window view, you get a “clean” link to the instance. In the full window view, the icon for the copy link button is located in the upper right corner of the form. After pressing it, the link is copied to the clipboard.

A window informing about properly copying the link will appear on the screen:

The copied link has the following format:

In the preview window, the copying link is located in the upper right corner and has the same function:
