Detail Page Link in Managed Package.

Hello All,
We are displaying report through detail page links on our custom objects. But the issue is when I install this as a package, in the target org the report is not getting displayed because report ID gets changed from org to org.Moreover I am not able to edit this detail page link as it is a managed pacakge componenet. So any suggestion for this or any alternative for this. Your help will be really appreacated.

Hello Sai,

Passing Id directly in a managed package is never a good option. You can instead query the Id of the report using this query in your package:

SELECT DeveloperName,Id FROM Report WHERE DeveloperName = 'test_rep' limit 1

Hope that answers your question.

Hello Rishab,

we are passing that ID in detail page link under objects. How to pass SELECT DeveloperName,Id FROM Report WHERE DeveloperName = 'test_rep' limit 1 in the detail page link, when I try the syntax throws error.

Hello Sai,

I am sorry it seems like there was some miscommunication from my end. However, you cannot use a simple query directly in the button. What you need to do is in behavior select execute Javascript and use javascript similar to this:

var query = "select Id from Report where DeveloperName = 'opp' limit 1"; 
var result = sforce.connection.query(query); 
var records = result.getArray("records"); 
var repRec = records[0];

window.location.href = '/'+repRec.Id+'?pv0={!Account.Id}'

Also, take care that now the merge fields need to be inside single quotes otherwise the script will throw an error of unexpected token.
