Set External Context


You can set up an external context when launching your application. This is especially helpful when starting an app from somewhere else, for example a robotic process automation (RPA) process.

For example, you can set the values for two variables when the application loads. To do this, follow the procedure below.


  1. Open your already existing application or start a new one.
  2. Create two new app variables, FirstName and LastName.
  3. Add two new Texbox controls to your app and bind the variables created at step 2 to each textbox. Bind the FirstName variable to the first textbox, and the LastName variable to the second textbox.
  4. Publish the app.
  5. Go to the ⚙️ App Settings window.
  6. Copy the Production URL of your app.

  7. Paste the production URL in your browser and add the following at the end: /?Firstname=John&Secondname=Doe. In the end, the URL should have the following syntax:
  • Introduction
  • Procedure
