UI page access

UI page access

Each UI page has a URL computed from the application scope, page name, and the .do file extension.

For example, to display the page called glidewindow_example on the demo system, you would navigate to https://<instance name> If the page was part of a custom application called example_app, you would instead navigate to https://<instance name>

You can also add additional parameters to a URL that can be accessed within a page's HTML section as jelly variables. That is, appending arguments to the URL as follows: / creates jelly variables called verbose that can be accessed as follows:
<j2:if test="$[!empty(sysparm_verbose)]"> <span>show extra stuff </span> </j2:if >

A common practical example of this might be retrieving a database record for display. To build a list of a user's roles, pass in a parameter with the user's sys_id. Invoke the following UI page to display a list of roles for that user with Jelly code:
<j:set var = "jvar_user_id" value = "${sysparm_user}" />
  <g:evaluate> var userRoles = new GlideRecord('sys_user_has_role');
  <select id='select_role'> 
     <j:while test = "${}"> 
        <option value = "${userRoles.sys_id}"> ${} </option> 

An exception to be careful of, though, is the reserved variable name sys_id. This variable always contains the ID of the UI page itself, regardless of what is specified in the URL. A common substitute variable name is sysparm_id.
