AWI v12.2 URLs 

05-02-2018 11:53 AM

This document pertains to AWI v12.2. URL parameters have changed in later versions; see also AWI v12.3 URLs.

AWI URL parameters

The AWA documentation contains instructions for Enabling parameterized login in AWI:

  1. In your AWI instance, set the parameter_login.enabled property to "true" in the file.

  2. In your AWI startup URL append the login information that you want to have already entered in the login window, so that the URL looks like this:

By examining an AWI trace, I was able to discover several undocumented URL parameters.

Parameter Description Example Documented
system AE system name UC4_EXP2
client AE client number 0001
name User name JSMITH
department Department name CORP
password Password¹ myPas$w0rd
language Language (en/de/fr)² en
sso Enable single sign-on (Kerberos)? (yes/no) yes
autologin Enable automatic login? (yes/no)³ yes


  1. To use the password parameter, you must add the line parameter_login.with_password=true to the file and restart the AWI server. (See AWI configuration settings.)
  2. If the language parameter is specified, it must be specified first, before other parameters.
  3. To use autologin=yes, you must also specify sso=yes.


Note: there is also a debug parameter that can be used to display a debugging window. This is mostly useful to the AWI developers.

Using these parameters, it is possible to construct URLs that log in automatically with SSO to a particular AE system and client.

AWI URL perspectives

Each of the main AEI perspectives has its own parameter, specified after the AWI host name and prefixed by a hash (#) character.

Perspective URL
Administration https://awi-hostname/#administration 
Process Assembly https://awi-hostname/#pa 
Process Monitoring https://awi-hostname/#pm 
Service Catalog https://awi-hostname/#sc 
Dashboards https://awi-hostname/#home 


AWI URL examples


AWI URL navigation locations

The navigation parameter specifies a particular properties sheet of an object. It is thus possible to construct a URL that will navigate directly to a particular properties sheet of a particular object.


There are many different navigation locations:


AWI tab

AWI sub-tab navigation-location
Default tab for object type default
General sheet.simpleoverview
General Sync sheet.sync
General Runtime sheet.runtime
General Object Authorizations sheet.object.authorizations
Attributes sheet.attributes
Process sheet.script
Process Pre-Process sheet.script_pre
Process Post-Process sheet.script_post
Output Output-Scan sheet.output_scan
Variables & Prompts Variables sheet.variables
Variables & Prompts Prompt Sets sheet.prompts
Rollback sheet.rollback
Version Management sheet.version
Documentation Docu sheet.documentation.Docu
Rapid Automation sheet.ra
Console Event Event Process sheet.event.console.script
DB Event Event Process sheet.event.db.script
File Event Event Process sheet.event.file.script
Time Event Event Process sheet.event.time.script

Knowing this URL format, it is possible to include AWI links in emails, web pages, etc. Here are some examples.



Note that hash characters (#) in object names must be replaced with %23 in AWI URLs.


AWI deep links

By combining these parameters, you can create deep links to specific AWI perspectives or specific AE objects. Here’s an example from a wiki page, with icons added to improve readability.

(A ZIP file containing all the AWI icons is attached to this document.)

In case somebody has the same issue. Successfully tested with these two parameters and logintype=AE:

- parameter_login.enabled=true
- parameter_login.with_password=true

o.k., but thx for your quick answer. I keep looking for the solution :-)

I’ve actually never tried passing the password in the URL. I use Kerberos single sign-on instead. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

Hi Michael,
one short question about your blog about parameterized url's. You wrote, if I also want to put the password into the url, I need to set the parameter parameter_login.with_password=true into the and restart the app server. I've done that parameterisation, but it doesn't works. I additionally try to set &password=???? into the url but I only get the login page. Parameter User, Department, language etc. works fine. Is there anything else I have to note about that function with setting the password into the url?
Thx & rgds
