ARIS Connect - 9.x - Hyperlink to Diagram Tab (Factsheet)

Hello Community!

Happy New Year, and all the best for 2017!

I have a customer requirement that hyperlinks generated from the ARIS Connect Portal, either via the 'Share Model' mini workflow, or via copying the URL from the browser address bar, should direct the user to the 'Diagram' tab / factsheet where the URL target is a model.  Currently, the system behaviour is that the 'Overview' tab for the model is displayed for all users following any hyperlinks to content that has an associated diagram.  

Does anyone know if it is possible to default the 'diagram' tab to be the view that is opened when following a URL to model based content? 

Note, we are using a custom variant of the 'classic' view configuration set. 

Thanks in advance,

Dear Ben,

There's no URL parameter available to target a specific Connect tab, so called Connect fact sheets. Instead, configure the Diagram tab to show up as first tab in the Connect configuration. I think Self-Service Configuration isn't capable of providing that, but the technical (XML-files based) configuration for sure does that.

Hi Rune, 

Thanks for the response.  I've had a look at the associated documentation for the technical view configuration (attached) for the customer's release of ARIS Connect (9.8 SR4), but I'm struggling to identify the files that will require modification.  Do you happen to know which files will need adapting?  I'm assuming this configuration is at item level, defining the order of display of the constituent fact sheets, and that the change will simply to be to shift the XML-tag for the 'Diagram' fact sheet to be ahead of the 'Overview' tag.  

Do you know the technical names of either the process / model item and / or the Diagram and Overview factsheets? 

Many Thanks,
