Create a link to an underlying data source

Created by: Kristinn Magnusson

In this article, you will read about creating a link to an underlying data source in exMon. To fix exceptions created by exMon, users most often need to go into an underlying data source. If the query contains an ID from the underlying system, the exception can be set up to contain a link to the data of the data source itself. This offers exMon users a much quicker way to fix exceptions that arise.

Worked example

Let's say that the user has a query to check upcoming due dates in the sales pipeline. If an exception rises from this query, the user may also want to open a form in Sharepoint to provide further details. From there, the user may want to contact the owner of the sales opportunity to resolve the issue.

To make a link from each exception to the Sharepoint form, the user first creates a query like this:


Now the user opens Column Formatting and changes the LinkToSharepoint column to format as Textile:


Expected result:
