How to setup a URL link to a report in another project so that the user does not have to log into that other project in MicroStrategy Web 8.1.x

Using the URL API in MicroStrategy Web 8.1.x, users can create links in documents (Report Services and HTML) that users can simply click on to automatically take them to that report to execute.
However, one requirement that a developer may have is that instead of linking to a report inside of the same project where the document is contained, the developer may need to link to a different project on the same MicroStrategy Intelligence Server.

  1. The developer needs to statically replace {&PROJECT} with the name of the project the report will be contained in.
  2. The user that will be clicking on the URL must have access to the project the report links to.
  3. The ‘Project List’ setting on the Web Administration page must be set to ‘Log in, then show the projects accessible by the supplied login,’ as shown below:
    Hope it helps!!
    Have a Good Day!
