@sanjayn66673968,

passing data from your redirect can be done via URL parameters; Take the example of [302 Redirect] URL: http://localhost:4502/content/my-site/ca/en-AK/home.html?dataID=211231332424424
The resulting page is expected to will have javascript reading the URL parameter "dataID"; this Javascript should be invoked from your client library. 

 

 

<script type="text/javascript">
function getUrlParameter(name) {
    name = name.replace(/[\[]/, '\\[').replace(/[\]]/, '\\]');
    var regex = new RegExp('[\\?&]' + name + '=([^&#]*)');
    var results = regex.exec(location.search);
    return results === null ? '' : decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/\+/g, ' '));
};
alert(getUrlParameter('dataID');
</script>

 

 

The URL example provided above is for an Author environment, which is where you would probably be testing and developing your feature.

Hope this helps!
