Acquire A Request Parameter From Webcenter Interaction (WCI) Portal URL Using PEI And IDK

(Doc ID 942011.1)

Last updated on APRIL 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Interaction Development Kit - Version 6.5 and later
Oracle WebCenter Interaction - Version 6.5 to 10.3.3.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Some portlet functionalities depend upon parameters passed over the URL as custom query strings.  If the user is not logged in to the portal, if the user directly requests the URL or calls a portal direct link that contains the custom query parameters, those parameters get lost between the portal and the portlet calls.

One way to save these parameters is to combine the use of PEI and the user preferences. The PEI ILoginActions interface allows to create functionality within the scope of the login process, and the IDK allows to set/retrieve the items.
