Orion Maps: Add HTML Target Attribute To Hyperlinks in Behavior Section

Orion Maps: Add HTML Target Attribute To Hyperlinks in Behavior Section

Background

In Maps 1.0 (i.e. Network Atlas), a user can select any icon for a managed entity and add a hyperlink. The hyperlink can be configured with an HTML <a> target Attribute. 

However, in Maps 2.0 (i.e Orion Maps) the only supported HTML target attribute is _BLANK.

Workaround

Not Available.

Feature Request

In the BEHAVIOR section, the hyperlink should support all relevant HTML target attributes. The most important HTML Target Attribute in UX design is _SELF.

Attribute Values:

ValueDescription
_SELFOpens the linked document in the same frame as it was clicked.
_TOPOpens the linked document in the full body of the window.
_BLANKOpens the linked document in a new window or tab.


Use Cases

This feature: Orion Maps: HyperLink For Application, Group, and Node Icons combined with the Orion Maps: Add HTML Target Attribute To Hyperlinks in Behavior Section feature would allow users to create robust dashboards that employ Orion Maps to navigate between views in SolarWinds Orion.

_SELF:

The _SELF HTML target attribute opens a linked view in the same frame as it was clicked. The _SELF attribute mimics the drill-down motion and is essential to create UX workflows in SolarWinds dashboards.

_TOP:

The _TOP HTML target attribute opens the linked view in the full body of the window. The _TOP attribute can be used to create help and pop-up dialog boxes.

_BLANK:

The _BLANK HTML target attribute opens the linked view in a new window or tab.
