Passing URL parameters to a Workspace startpoint form


Former Community Member

Hi everybody, please take a look at this one:

We need to access a TaskManager endpoint directly through URL with additional parameters.


In the opened interactive PDF form, we need to read the "myVar" URL parameter somehow and use its value in one of our fields.

Is this possible with JavaScript or some other way?

Thanks for any comments...

Not possible through JavaScript coding!

You may save the parameter values in database for a short-period.

While rendering the form, these values can be read from DB and populated by Prepare Data process.

This will workout only when the URL is lanched from another client application. Typing the URL directly into the browser's address bar won't help!

Hi everyone,

Has anyone come accross, how to pass additional custom parameters to Workspace ES through URL like ? :

http://livecycle:8080/workspace/Main.html?startEndpoint=MyServiceName. MyEndpointName&myVar=MyValue

Is it possible to use myValue while rendering the form?
