The requirement is to launch an external URL based on a field value i.e. in the List Applet, we have a field called “Info Number”. In a different external system, we have detailed information for each of these Info Numbers.We need to create a hyperlink on this field. This hyplerlink will open a new window with a specific URL. The Info Number will be a part of this URL.


Follow the below steps to implement this requirement using Configuration steps:
1. In Siebel Tools, go to your BC and create a new calculated field as below:

* Change the Calculated value as per your URL requirement.
** [Info Number]  is the existing field in the BC which is a part of this URL.
*** Info Number field is a required Field just like a SR Number.
**** action and Num are the parameters of the URL

2. Go to your applet and create a new List Column as below:


3. Modify the Web Layout for the applet and expose the list column on the required mode.

4. Compile all the objects modified above and launch the client to see the URL generated accordingly to the Info Number. Clicking on URL will open the external system URL in a new browser window.
