Is there way when we click on a!startProcessLink() it opens in a different tab rather than the same tab?
I can do right click and open in new tab and it works. But i want to do this automatically on click of the link.

I have similar requirement to start process on a new tab, but my process need some parametreised variables to be passed while calling, hence I have used a local variable where I initialise the proccess variables and then this local variable is used inside the URI field of a!safelink.But am not getting the desired outout as each time the page loads with error message saying i do not have right permission, which is not true because i have all the required rights plus same configuration works when i directly use a!startProcessLink instead of a!safeLinkBut as i need to load the process in new tabe I have to use a!safeLink. could you please help me
I saw the document you have attached and see that the URI you have passed to the safe link does not seem valid. It should have the below format(xxxxxx to be replaced with your appian client+environment) to work -
uri: "https://xxxxxx.appiancloud.com/suite/tempo/start-process/" & local!startLink.processModelOpaqueId & "?parameters=" & local!startLink.cacheKey
Is there a way to implement this in Appian sites ? Currently new tab in the browser opens in tempo as we have configured Temp on the uri . I tried to configure in sites ,but no luck. Is there a way to configure to open in new tab when using application in Appian sites . Something like https://[Appian Site URL].appiancloud.com/suite/sites/[application-name].
You can use Safelink and in that you can provide the url to which you want to navigate.
I tried using safelink , but looks like we can open new tab in Tempo ,if configured in Sites ( I mean application hosted using Sites --> suite/sites/ ) ,I am getting access denied error .
Can you use a record action instead of a start process link? The record action contains a property for "openActionsIn" that allows you to designate whether to open in a new tab, same tab, or dialog. If you do this, it will work within your site rather than opening in Tempo.
Also just a general suggestion - I'd recommend creating a new post in the future rather than adding to an existing thread. In 4 years a lot of things change so there are often new ways to achieve functionality that could be better served with a new post
Thank you for the heads up on the record action.

As an aside, i think it was a bit of an oversight / feature incompleteness issue that [some of] the other link components were updated with launch target overrides (which is great) but a!startProcessLink() was passed over. Especially considering that with enough (unreasonably work-aroundish) effort, someone could set up arbitrary links anyway using the Record Action link as you mentioned - of course this would require staging a dummy record type, a dummy action, etc - and for what gain?
It's a fair point - how often would you say that you have an action that isn't associated with a record in some way though?

I don't know whether that's a fair metric by which to judge whether a!startProcessLink()'s lack of a "new_tab" launch target is actually a "feature incompleteness" issue.
But I'll go ahead and say I use it fairly often and (without having an easy way to tally retrospectively of course) i'd roughly estimate that maybe 75% of my use cases are relevant to data that doesn't concern any specific entry in one of the (relatively few) DB tables we have set up as Record Types.
