This issue has been solved. See solution.

Been playing with this for a couple hours now and it is now apparent I am missing something or maybe 2 things :)

How do you configure the parameters when doing drill down reports that open a URL to a new window?

Under Action Configuration the URL = /altiris/reporting/report.aspx?ItemGuid=GUIDOFTHEREPORT (Yes, I want a new window to open to make the transition of screens easier for the end user)

Under Passing Parameters I have the 2 parameters being passed with source and target matching up. I am not using the Target Parameter Type.

I have already viewed these KB articles. http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO9689 and http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO9676

The drill down report does open but the parameters do not match up with the passed values. So I got to ask, is there a KB or connect article doing the steps by steps or am I missing something else?

Thanks.

Figured it out.

Part of what I had to do was rebuild all the top level reports. Somewhere a stuck GUID was being passed down to the drill down reports.

This was the URL used and the three parameters. Even though I am passing strings and GUIDs I left everything as strings when being passed between the reports.

/Altiris/Reporting/Report.aspx?ItemGuid=c8e2abcf-d5e8-4927-90b7-bb45ec4176fe&Parameters=MYMETRIC:[{MYMETRIC}],MYRESOURCE:[{MYRESOURCE}],MYINSTANCE:[{MYINSTANCE}]

Ugh. This should help someone else.
