Modify URL of a view

Hi Experts,

I'm new to BSP, and I have only learned about the basics.

I have a requirement, which I really cant figure out how to do.

When a user accesses a page via BSP, the portal adds the value of the user's email at the URL, so that this value will be passed on to the BSP and will be retrieved via getformfield.

Now, for security reasons, our client wants us to delete that email address at the URL. In order for us to retrieve the email address, we think the best way is to have the first page/view to be a dummy site, just so we can retrieve the email address and then immediately redirect to the next page, without the email address in the URL.

I've been searching the forums, and the only thing i can find is to use method CONSTRUCT_BSP_URL to modify URL, but the problem is, I cant pass the data without still adding the email address to the URL.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    you have a BSP iview and in that iview user email id is passed on as application parameter?

    we think the best way is to have the first page/view to be a dummy site, just so we can retrieve the email address

    this dummy site is going to be another BSP page?

    if you can retrieve the email address from the BSP application, then you dont need the application parameter.

    generally to avoid exposing form fields in the URL, you could use a http POST method.
