Deploying Presentations

You can deploy presentations by sending a URL to end users. You can have this URL open a presentation directly, or you can send a URL for the myAccess Links page, from which users can access all presentations that have been assigned to them.

To deploy a presentation
  • Send the applicable URL to your end users.
    To provide
    Send this URL
    Access to the myAccess Links page http://server_name:port_number/mcs/pbclient
    Secure access to the myAccess Links page https://server_name:port_number/mcs/pbclient
    Caution You must also set the Presentation Builder Runtime Service location in Presentation Manager to use the https protocol, and the required port number for secure access, as defined on the MCS Security Services page.
    Note To fit the following long URLs in this browser window, we added an artificial space after the equal sign behind METHODNAME. If you copy and paste these URLs, remove the spaces. Also, if your presentation name has spaces in it, you must replace these spaces with the plus sign (+).

    For example, My Host Application must be entered as My+Host+Application.

    Direct access to a presentation http://server_name:port_number/mcs/uibroker?SERVICEID=AtmClientUIService&METHODNAME= openChannel&ACTIONITEMS=locale;presentation_name
    Direct, pre-authenticated
    access to a presentation
    http://server_name:port_number/mcs/uibroker?SERVICEID=AtmClientUIService&METHODNAME= openChannelAutoLogin&ACTIONITEMS=locale;presentation_name&USERNAME=user_name&PASSWORD=password

    Use direct, pre-authenticated URLs to provide specific users with shortcuts to particular applications, to allow those users to access the applications without requiring them to login when he or she opens the application. The values for the USERNAME and PASSWORD refer to the user accounts assigned using MCS.

    Note By default, this functionality is turned off. For details on changing the default value, see Additional myAccess Links Properties. The variable is openChannelAutoLoginEnabled.
