Set URLs for catalog modules

You can direct users to a specific catalog via a URL to a module in that particular catalog.

About this task

When you create a module for your catalog page, you can direct users to a specific catalog and view from this module via a URL.

Procedure

In the Link Type section, select URL (from Arguments), then in the Arguments field, enter a URL of the form catalog_home.do?sysparm_catalog=id of sc_catalog record&sysparm_catalog_view=view name of sys_portal_page.

For example, catalog_home.do?sysparm_catalog=742ce428d7211100f2d224837e61036d&sysparm_catalog_view=catalog_technical_catalog

Note: If you make the default catalog inactive, then deactivate the Catalog module otherwise users can continue to access the inactive catalog using that module.
If a URL has a valid sysparm_catalog parameter, but an invalid or missing sysparm_catalog_view parameter, the view with the default value from the corresponding Catalog Portal Page record is used.
If a URL has a valid sysparm_catalog_view parameter, but an invalid or missing sysparm_catalog parameter, the corresponding Catalog Portal Page record is used to set the catalog.
Note: To ensure peak performance, define both parameters correctly.
