Passing data to a field in a URL

You can pass values to fields in forms by including the field ID in the URL, as follows:


In the following example, a value of Web User is passed to the Creator field (field ID=2) of the User form stored on the BMC Remedy AR System server mars, from the mid tier server saturn. The default context path is arsys.


Values with spaces or special characters must be properly encoded. In this example, the space between Web and User is encoded with %20.

If you want to add more parameters, you can use the & sign, for example:



If you enter a value that does not exist for a radio button or drop-down list field on the specified form, the value is not set when the form is displayed in the browser.
