A New Mechanism For Using Direct Page Links (Deeplinks)

Richard Bingham
Senior Development Manager

You may have spotted a 'Deep Links' menu item under the Administration section of the Navigator menu. This opens the page below, showing a collection of pages. These are pages within Core HCM product family who are the first to adopt a new deeplink framework.

The existing deeplink mechanisms (discussed here) remain, therefore just leverage the capability that is available for the pages you wish to link to.

As you can see from the url at the bottom of the screen, there is a simple pattern to the resulting links:


Pages are registered in an internal database table against an Object Type (the objType above) which is used in the URL. The registry entry can include support for an Action, such as add, edit, or create, along with support for parameter values.  This means your links can contain not only top-level pages but also take users directly to context-aware processes. As an example this same framework has been used to provide the new direct links in Object Workflow approvals supported for Sales Cloud, as mentioned here in the release notes.

The 'Deep Links' page (screenshot above) is simply a listing of pages for reference, and it is not possible to create new registrations or change page registrations at this time. If you find pages which cannot be linked-to, using this or the existing deeplink methods, please log this enhancement requirement for Oracle Support to get the page registered in this new framework.
