Retrieve Permalink from Admin & Usage

Permalinks provide a link that launches the application in the browser and the tool linked with the permalink given that the player is active, and content is in a playable state. Permalink is a unique Identification string that needs to be added at the end of the URL of the page on which the permalink content is to be presented.  

The permalinks for Workflow can be copied from the manage workflows page in Admin. Similarly, for any specific Step that needs to be launched can be copied from step editor in Admin.


Note: Whenever the step permalink doesn’t match the correct page, or the step permalink is invalid the flow is launched from the beginning.


Steps to copy permalink from the Admin:


1. Log into Admin Console.


2. Click on "Manage" tab to expand it.


3. Click on "Workflows" item in the sub-menu.


4. Workflows corresponding to application selected from the side bar will be shown.


The Search Bar can be used to search for a Workflow by its name.

 



In order to retrieve permalink for specific steps:
