A URL Parameter can be added to any Space, making it available for components in the Space to utilize. This can be useful if you want to create a Space that shows data tied to a specific parameter.
Note: URL Parameter should only include 0-9, letters A-Z & a-z, "-", ".", and "_".
A URL Parameter can be used to filter data displayed in components like Table, Detail, or Card List. For example, you may want to display all records in a Table where the column "id" is equal to the URL Parameter "company_id" that is passed into your Space.
A URL Parameter can also be used to populate components like Form, Button, Calculated Fields, and JSON Viewer. For example, you may want to pre-fill a form's input field "Id" with the value of the URL Parameter "company_id" that is passed into your Space.
URL Parameters are a great way to add contextual linking between Spaces. Once you've added a URL Parameter to a Space (Space A), go to another Space (Space B) and try adding a Link component. The Link template should include your URL parameter.
For example, https://secure.internal.io/spaces/A?company_id=1234 would send a user to Space "A" where the URL Parameter "company_id" is equal to 1234.
