We use a different link. Right click on the report > E-mail Link > Copy the link from the body of the email and paste it to the task list. It could also be a browser issue since we are on IE9.
Is the Smartcut working if you use that directly in IE (not the task list route$
Yes, the Smartcut works when entering it directly into the url. It does prompt to confirm the database connection and password again, but once I did that, the report showed up. But when I ran it from task list, it still doesn't work right as the same error appears.
There is an unpublished bug for the same.
When Opening an Hyperion FR or WA Report Embeded Through Smartcut URL In A Planning Task List Results in Error: "EPM Workspace cannot function inside of a frame. Contact your system administrator." [ID 1314405.1]
It has the solution listed to use a special url to launch the report.
Couple of things that I noted.
3rd point in the solution talks about special characters (It is URL encoding they are referring to for example if you have a space in the folder then instead of space use %20, http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/ will be helpful in encoding)
Once you launch the FR report, Planning Task List will show this message "This window can now be closed since the application has been launched in a separate window. Note: Popup blockers may prevent this application from working properly."
When you click on a different place (say Forms), you may get a pop-up in IE asking whether to stay on the page or leave the page. Always click on "Stay on Page".
Removing the spaces in the file path and report name worked! Thanks Celvin!
