Why are my forms that link to an external URL not working?

Path Finder

All,

After following the help page located here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.3/Viz/Dynamicdrilldownindashboardsandforms#Form_link...

I am still unable to be directed to external site (of splunk app).

My Code used:

    <option name="count">8</option>
    <option name="height">400</option>
    <option name="drilldown">row</option>
    <option name="refresh.display">none</option>
    <option name="rowNumbers">0</option>
    <option name="showPager">1</option>
    <option name="fontColor">#ccc</option>
    <drilldown>
      <link target="_blank">http://10.0.1.40/report/$row.ID$/summary/</link>
    </drilldown>

I have also tried :

<![CDATA[[ http://10.0.1.40/report/$row.ID$/summary/ ]]>

No joy...

Any help is appreciated!

Hi rbardonetorian,
try something like this:

<drilldown>
   <![CDATA[http://10.0.1.40/report/$row.ID$/summary/]]>
</drilldown>

Bye.

I have also tried:

       <drilldown>
          <link target="blank"><![CDATA[http://10.0.1.40/report/$row.ID$/summary/]]></link>
        </drilldown>

With no joy..

The result is a new page opening and chopping off the front piece of the URL that should have been passed.
ie: https://report/14/summary/

As you see the IP address is missing and it defaulted back to the HTTPS protocol. Is this a security feature of some sort keeping all tranmissions HTTPS if the Splunk server is HTTPS? (yes my Splunk server has HTTPS enabled)

Thanks!

This is / was EXACTLY the problem. (Security Feature) I tried HTTPS and it passed just fine.

Thanks all. Looks like I need to get https enabled on my reports server.
