Advanced Tab Features

Like the settings tab, the Advanced tab has a couple of major functions.

Web Server URL and display fields hold information used when the survey template is displayed in a browser.

Attachments can hold a variety of external files that are used by the survey template.

Example of Advanced Tab:


Web Settings

The following fields are important to the web settings of the service request:

Web Server URL - defines the web server and any ports (optional) and the domain that are associted with your survey template. The normal construction is http://myServerName:ports/kinetic. There is a list of other options available that is drawn from a configuration item. When a survey template is imported, it is given the default URL for the environment.

Display Page JSP - sets the jsp page that is used to display a survey. /dispalyPage.jsp is the default that comes with the application. You can add your own path to the display Page JSP to match any customizations you have made to your web server.

Custom Header Content - allows you to add HTML to the head of the survey template. You can add links to external files, direct CSS, or javascript. To help with javascript, there is an option to Add Fields option that is the same as on a Dynamic Text element.

Allow Anonymous  - check box enables the Open Anonymous link for the survey template next to the Status field.

Anonymous URL - read only field that presents the entire anonymous URL for the survey template.

Display Name For URL - the normal URL for a survey template includes the instance Id from the survey template Instance ID at the end to uniquely identify the survey template to be displayed. To create a "friendlier" URL, place a unique (throughout the entire Kinetic Request/Kinetic Survey applications) name in this field. Then change your URL to be the following:

Default anonymous URL - http://myWebServer:port/kinetic/DisplayPage?srv=AG98125b2fpuiqbq48237rgqbtb

URL with Display Name For URL value of appRequest


The value in the Display Name For URL field must be valid to use in a URL - no spaces or special characters.


The attachments table and the corresponding buttons let you add files that are used by the survey template. There are four types of files that can be added.

Example of Add File dialog:

Javascript - single file of this type only. It is added to the head of the display page jsp file.

Stylesheet - single file only. It is added to the head of the display page jsp file.

File - any type of file that needs to be kept with the survey template. This is often a pdf or similar document that has a link to reference it somewhere in the survey template.

All of the images are saved in Remedy attachment fields on the survey template. They are also saved on the web server in the directory alloted to the survey template.

After selecting the File Type you need to complete the following fields:

Attachment Description is a text description of the file.

File Name is the file name that is shown on the HTML, it doesn't have to be the same as the actual file.
