Hyperlinks configurator

Hyperlinks configurator
Create hyperlink actions on object via configuration parameters

Create hyperlink buttons to jump from one object in iTop into another application, via configurable URLs, without writing a single line of code.


  • Hyperlink, label, tooltip and icon are configurable
  • The scope option makes it possible to display the hyperlink only on objects matching a specific rule
  • The target of the link is configurable as well (by default _blank to open the link in another tab/window)
  • The contexts option specifies if the link is available in the backoffice (console) and/or in the portal(s) (and in which portal if there are several of them).
  • The action/button can be limited to users having at least one of the allowed_profiles.

'combodo-custom-hyperlinks' => array (
   'hyperlinks' => array (
      'Person' => array (
         'linkedin_me' => array (
            'label' => 'Linkedin Me!',
            'url' => 'https://www.linkedin.com/search/results/all/?keywords=$this->friendlyname$',

You can also display the hyperlink as a button (next to the “Other actions…” menu) by specifying its UID in the configuration parameter 'shortcut_actions'
The icons are displayed using the Font Awesome font (already included in iTop). Therefore the icon codes to use are the Font Awesome 4.7 codes


Just click on the button(s) !
