How to receive a URL parameter into a parameter in a URL string in an HTML datapage



I have a URL parameter that is correctly passing the parameter from Page 1 to Page 2.

On Page 2, I have an HTML DataPage that is supposed to receive my parameter from the URL, but it's not receiving it.

My HTML DataPage contains a button, and it's this button that is supposed to receive the parameter, so that when the button is clicked, it passes the parameter to Page 3, which is my Submission Form DataPage.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to fix it?

How exactly are you receiving the parameter on the 2nd page?

If you can see the parameter on the URL, you should be able to pull it to your datapage by using [@parameter_name] on the HTML block or header/footer.

Ex. MyURL.com?testparam=12

To receive that parameter on an HTML block, you will need to mention a '[@testparam]' there.

May we please have a sample on how do you have it on your end?

If you have it set up as NiceDuck described, and you are sure that the parameter name in the URL is the same with the [@parameter_name], you should be getting it. A good test is to try calling it by itself first before applying to a button to see if a value is being received. You can just like disable html editor on the HTML datapage and put [@testparam] then preview it. If it show the value then you are receiving it and might just a problem in using the value for the redirection.

Hi - Just wanted to share this solution. If you would like to get and display a field value/external parameter on an external HTML page, you can follow these steps:

1. Add an HTML code as a holder of the parameter, for example:

<span id="user"></span>

2. Insert a JavaScript, call and display the parameter in the holder.


const queryString = window.location.search;
const urlParams = new URLSearchParams(queryString);
const userParam = urlParams.get('param');
document.getElementById("user").innerHTML = userParam;


The param is the name of the parameter from an external URL.
