Hello, we are using Solidworks Enterprise PDM Document management system for which we were creating links in Sharepoint. WHen a user clicks on the link it would pull the document from the document management system The old system was working because the links were actual http links.
Well the new system is build to where the links are like this conisio://PDM/open?projectid=41&documentid=17340&objecttype=1
When I create a new link in Sharepoint and click the "Click here to test" The link works fine but when I click OK to create the link I get the error "Invalid URL"
Is there a way I can change the Sharepoint link function to be more lenient to where it will accept the link?
I found this on the Internet but it didnt work for me. Does Sharepoint really use this core.js file to control what links will be accepted inside of Sharepoint?
1.Open Core.js in Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\INC
2.Look for the line with the text "Hyperlink.arrAllowedProtocols"
3.Add the necessary protocol to the list of protocols below
5.Insert the previously outlawed protocol link to test
Tahnk you for your post. Hyperlinks in hyperlink fields must use protocols supported by Windows SharePoint Services. Some protocols, such as telnet, gopher & other custom ones , are not supported for security reasons.
This is By Design . List of Supported protocols is
