Dear ARIS Supporters, Because of some messages about the possibility to add model links for accessing models via the Business publisher, and problems encountered related to an ARIS version concerning 'setHyperlink', I created a report 'model info via group report' as example. Script is created by combining script code parts of IDSS, Martin Schroder, ARIS Community messages and me. Maybe the contents of the zip file can be helpfull Erick NB Script Info: Version 1.1 Depending on the selected options creates a report for models of the selected group or also includes the models of the sub group(s). Output is generated via the xlt template 'Models in group'. Model links for BP are set up via the values in 'BPmodelLinkInfo.xml' Script generates an excel file of the models with the following static details: Model Name + possible link of model on the Business Publisher Model Type Group Path Description Creator Time of Generation Changed By Time Last Change.

The report runs fine, but the links do not work for me in Business Publisher running ARIS 7.1 Service Release 5.

I've tried modifying the XML file (Strserver and Strprofilehash) and the .arx file to comment out the ProfileHash (lines 40, 117, 120) based on Erick's notes.

I get this error message from Business Publisher:

"The link parameters are not correct."

Can someone advise what I need to change to make this work with ARIS 7.1 Service Release 5?

Dear Jacky,

Commenting out the profilehash parts in the arx one of  the reason for the error "The link parameters are not correct."

In the code the '&' sign is added for the final link because it was not possible to include it in the xml

The values to be set in the xml, for the to be created link, are case sensitive.

Please try the following steps for adjusting the xml:

-Open, as usual, via anonymous the BP and select a model

-Right click --> copy link to retrieve the link details

- Adjust the values in the xml according to the retrieved link

Don't include the '&' sign in the link because the '&' sign is set in the code

Hi Erick,

I am keen to run your report, but an error is popping up in line 103 as shown below.

I did import the .arx file and then just run it. Then the below error pops up. If am running the report in a wrong manner, pls suggest on how to. And if you could please explain the concept and use of what is the business publisher got to do with this report, would be great.

Its been hard for me to interpret for what reason is publisher used in this script.

Hi Tarun,

Apologies for the late reaction. Was on vacation.

Error is related to XML file were the settings for the business publisher are set.

The related parts to business publisher are included in the script to automatically add links to the model name in the final report to view the graphic.

If you want to use the report without the link addition please let me know. I can send you then the script where the related parts are remarked.
