Reported by: Tong Zheng Owned by: Tong
Priority: -Low Milestone:
Component: View-App Version:
Severity: Minor Effort Keywords:


The help file such as <ibis:include href="help/InfDeathCode.xml"/> is transformed to URL It's supposed to be: This help file link is on

The similar help file works fine on, The help file is <ibis:include href="help/AgeRateHelp.xml"/>

I tried on verison 1.8. Both links work fine.

The reported issue is a UT XML content problem? Help and included help files are of the form:


<TITLE>Age-adjusted rate help</TITLE> <LOCAL_URL>query/AgeAdjustRate.html</LOCAL_URL>


The help file referenced in the ticket contains: <HELP>

<TITLE>Infant mortality 130 causes and fetal mortality causes</TITLE> <URL></URL>


Note the incorrect ".htm" extension.

If there is a problem with a help link then the associated HELP element (which is either in the module XML file or in an included help file) needs to be updated to the correct value. See the sys docs for info about this element and its valid values:

As a good practice any file touched should be tested before being committed to the repository. The gatekeeper/build/deployment person should look at all files touched and test prior to deploying to production. ibis:include testing should be done via the report or viewing the log output as the main XML file that references an include is used. URL testing should also be included. Not only does URL testing catch content errors like the one above but also can catch dead links to other web servers.

Most Utah help files resided outside of IBIS view system before 2010. The file names linked were ended with .htm. Recently we have moved most of those help files into IBIS view system in order to have the IBIS feel and look on help files. In IBIS view system, those file names linked under help directory should be ended as ".html" instead of "htm". Now I have changed all those file name under help directory.

For example:



<TITLE>Infant mortality 130 causes and fetal mortality causes</TITLE> <URL></URL>
