In Web AppBuilder I need to create a hyperlink to a PDF on the network file system inside the tooltip. Has anyone done this? I am using ArcGIS Enterprise.
You will need an actual url to add the hyperlink (use of a UNC path or network drive letter will not do).
Do you mean I need to serve the files on the web?
They need to be accessible by a url. That does not mean that they have to be accessible to the public. It could be a url that will only work for your network. But yes you need to create a virtual directory in IIS (if that is your web server) that points to the folder that the pdfs are in.
What tooltip are you referring to?
Robert is correct-- it is not currently supported to place direct UNC paths to data as links into Web Applications or attribute tables, even on Portal for ArcGIS. Any links used will have to be accessible via the net by hosting the linked file on a WebServer.
