Workspace URL parameters

April 23, 2009 at 12:59 pm 1 comment

I recently noticed that LiveCycle workspace URL has few parameters which would be really helpful in LC projects.

The format to livecycle workspace URL is something like this:

http://%5Bserver name]:[port]/workspace?[parm]=[value]

  • [server name]is the name of the LiveCycle ES server
  • [port] is the server port used for LiveCycle ES
  • [parm] is the name of the parameter
  • [value] is the value of the parameter

Three possible types of URL that we can use with the help of URL parameters are:

  1. URL pointing to a Task (Work item in To-Do list)
  2. http://localhost:8080/workspace?taskId=100

  3. URL to open workspace with any of the three tabs of workspace –
  4. http://localhost:8080/workspace?startPage=startProcess

  5. URL to open a form from Start Process page to kick off a new process –

http://localhost:8080/workspace?startEndpoint=%5Bservice name].[endpoint name]

The last one is in fact the most interesting one as you can publish the links on company portal and that will straight away open the relevant form so everyone wouldn’t have to find the form in Start Process page.

More details are at LiveDocs

    Parth, this is some really helpful information. Especially the third URL – we can really make use of this in our next release. Thanks very much!
