Automatically login the user when he clicks on a URL in Adobe Form

Hi Experts,

Am currently working on the e-recruitment module & have a query pertaining to Adobe Forms. As per client requirement the offer letters are despatched to the candidates in the form of an Adobe Form. This form will contain a URL to a 3rd party website. On clicking the URL the candidate would be taken to a website where in he can attend some online training sessions. Now the complexity lies in the fact that the client is adamant upon the user being automatically logged on to that website when he clicks on this link. Am new to Adobe Forms and could just realize up to creating an URL for navigating to the logon page. But how can I embed even the users credentials within this link so that he is automatically logged on to the website? Any inputs on this would be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Uday

    Hello,

    if I understand well you need to pass a dynamic URL into the adobe form, is that right? The user/ pass information is the same for all the job seekers? Or how you will get the information about the future user identity?

    For example you can create a URL in your backend system, pass it into a field of the form (hidden or visible) and on button click you can open the website for the user. But be prepared for the security message: Reader will ask the user to confirm he wants to get redirected to the site. Also do not forget to make your form dynamic so the user can click on the form elements.

    • Hi Otto,

      Thanks for following up with my issue. I know that you are gonna scream at this but the logon credentials are going to be different for all the candidates. As per client requirement the username would be the candidate id & the password would be his date of birth. So as this information would be readily available within the SAP E-Recruitment system they want this information to be embedded into the URL. So when the user clicks on it he should be directly logged on with his respective credentials. Is this requirement plausible?

    (Obama): Yes, you can! 😊)

    1) If you can get the logon data into ABAP DDIC (select to table or something)

    2) If you can change triggering the form print (that means you can change the generation code and the form easily)

    3) If you can format the URL in backend (but can be done using scripting in form as well but it is not recommended)

    then there is absolutely no problem:))

    If you want me to guide you through this, please attach as many details about what you have, what you need to do and what you don´t understand:)) Lets do this, regards, Otto

    p.s.: It is all about some form/ letter, do you have this form already or you must start from scratch?

    • Hi Otto,

      Sorry for the late reply its 10pm for me here... And yes I do very much need your help as to how to proceed with the development. We were all thinking to try say to the client as it isnt that easy to come up with a solution! Would really appreciate your inputs over the same...

      And please forgive me I just got to get some more clarifications. There is a standard smartform provided by SAP HRRCF_CS_EXA_OFFER_CONTRACT which is used as a template by the system when an offer is extended to someone. (This template is maintained in SPRO against the extend offer activity) Internally SAP does convert this smartform into a pdf for mail/preview/print purpose. So am sorry that this isn't directly an Adobe Form which I can enhance. I guess I would have to enhance the smartform to contain a URL.... Sorry for the mixup & hope you can help me with this form instead. I would at least like to learn this URL generation logic if you aren't knowledgeable about including a URL in a smartform.

      Regards,

      Uday

      PS: I have sent across some further technical details to you.
