The web report produced is compatible with any standard web server, on either Unix or Windows platforms. Simply bundle up the entire output directory and place it within the context of your web server. All path names should be relative and case sensitive.

When you view the HTML report in your HTML viewer, you can switch directly to a page for a specific diagram or element by specifying the appropriate GUID after the report web address. That is:



The word guid must be in lower case, and the value must not include braces { }.

http:// .../path/Index.htm?guid=DC62B0DA-0D60-4447-85E6-B9BBAE7FC90F


To obtain the GUID, right-click on the diagram, package or element in the Project Browser and select the Copy Reference context menu option.

The page locator does not work directly in Internet Explorer. Firefox automatically converts the path to file:///C:/path protocol, and actions it. That protocol also works in Internet Explorer. Therefore, to use the absolute references without a web server you must access the path using the file:/// protocol.
