I have a manager portal where when i click a link in report definition it opens a new tab, but it also opens a case. I want to know if its possible to create a new tab where i only show the section without opening a case.
How would i do it? Is it even possible to do that?
Looks like your report is listing cases and on click of it it's opening the case. You can customize the on click behavior, and use launch a harness action to open new tab and in that you can display a section.
If you dont want to open the case, instead display the properties and values in a section : go to the report definition and change the settings. Try checking the UI gallery for ideas, esp Embedded pane or Expand pane (under table and grids)
