URL Param and populating fields

I’m passing the id of a Partner object to this page and trying to extract its properties as initial values in a bunch of fields. I’m a bit stumped though as I don’t see a path to actually getting the id I’m passing along with the URL. See attached image.

Perhaps there is a better method of doing this. Note the URL form is:

http://mydomain/path/1 where 1 is the id.

Thanks!

Get data from URL at the bottom of the menu is probably what you’re looking for.

Thanks emmanuel! I’m a little closer but no cigar yet.

Here’s what my Initial content field looks like:

Search Partner’s Name
unique id = Get path from Page URL

which logically seems right to me. But I’m not seeing the field populated.

I figured it out by setting the page type

@eric What exactly did you do…no cigar yet for me!

What’s your goal with the URL parameter?

I have https://domain.com/soe?user=1#token=23 I can surely get the first user = 1 from the url but I can’t get the token. Am I missing something? I want to save both in the database and use later

Parameters are separated by “&”, so replace the “#” and that should do it.

https://domain.com/soe?user=1&token=23

Hash parameters aren’t available like that in Bubble I don’t think (tried to use them in a link from an OAUTH2 signup and ended up having to use an external API to Parse them). They are not available to the back end, only the front end.

Oh yup, if this is an authorization token of some kind, then what @NigelG said :slight_smile:

I have hacked it though…Did the search and replace thanks @romanmg then passed the value obtained in next command to open a new website, then was able to obtain the token value…using the Get Data from URL Method. Thanks to the provider they don’t reply with a redirection or error message @NigelG I am not sure about the sustainability of this though.

Good work ! And I thought I was a bit of a hacker :slight_smile:

Even using a Regex I couldn’t get it to work reliably (it was a big auth token) but had not thought about then using that parameter to open another webpage to get the parameter in again.

Although auth token hash parameters tend to have # first and then the ?

If it helps at all you can use my webtask service that does a simple url parse.

https://webtask.it.auth0.com/api/run/wt-nigel_godfrey-gmail_com-0/parseurl?qurl=https://domain.com/soe?user=1#token=23

Just replace qurl with your url. Although in this case the “hash” part isn’t recognised just the “path” parameter.
