Hypelink not getting retained in the EngageOne Vault

Issue

AFP with selected text hyperlinked is ingested in the Vault however hyperlink are not retained in the PDF output retrieved from Vault.

Cause

EngageOne Vault versions earlier than version 7.2.2.34 do not support text as hyperlink.

Resolution

UPDATED: August 10, 2018


The AFP file has no way of representing a URL link. Text strings like "www.test.com.bn" can be converted into links. It can't match the last character of a string of text in AFP, which is why 'n' is obmitted from '.bn' in following example. It only works if data is ASCII encoded and will not work if text of publication uses outline font and font substitution need to be enabled in fonts.ini.

Profile should look as following:

[Profile]
...
PDFWORD1=www.test.com.b
PDFURL1=https://www.test.com.bn
PDFWORDBorder1=1
...
Note:
  • PDFWORDBorder1 is only used to make the links slightly more visible.
  • These steps will only work with EngageOne Vault version 7.2.2.34 and later.
