Links to records in email notifications

Adding the ${URI} parameter to an outbound email body or template creates a link to a specific record.

When a user clicks the word LINK, the instance prompts the user to log in if not already logged in, and then redirects the user to the record specified in the URI.
Figure 1. Link displayed by ${URI} parameter
The ${URI} parameter has an extension called the ${URI+} format to specify additional arguments in the email link, such as sysparm terms, in addition to the automatically created URI. For example (whitespace added for improved readability):
${URI+&sysparm_scriptlet=current.assigned_to=gs.getUserID()
&sysparm_scriptlet_condition=current.assigned_to.nil()
&sysparm_view=incident_active}
This example executes the JavaScript:
current.asigned_to=gs.getUserID()
when the condition of
current.assigned_to.nil()

is satisfied. Additionally, the script sets the view to incident_active.
