In the OracleBI/web/msgdb/messages/controlmessages.xml file, remove or comment the following message:

<sawm:if name="enablePDF">
&lt;a class=&quot;NQWMenuItem&quot; name=&quot;SectionElements&quot; onclick=
&quot;NQWClearActiveMenu();&quot; href=&quot;
<sawm:param name="command"/>&amp;Action=Download&amp;Format=pdf&quot; 
<sawm:if name="bNewWindow"> target=&quot;_blank&quot;</sawm:if>
&gt;
<sawm:messageRef name="kmsgDashboardPrintPDF"/>&lt;/a&gt;
</sawm:if>

HTTP links are not supported in PDF, they are stripped out.

There is a work-around to display just the link name, but it might not work in all cases.

  • Override the default Data Format
  • Treat Text as: Custom Text Format
  • Custom Text Format: @H
