I am new to backendless and have some questions!
First, I saw in Messaging tab a confirmation email for new registred users.
I want to build something like that, and i hope it is working.
So my basic project:
If a user is entering his email in a form (data gets posted with php curl), then he receive a email with a url like the confirmation_url, but this email is leading to a html or php website.
There should be something like:
(with the get parameter)
And if he entered data to this form it will be uploaded with REST-Api.
So my main question: How is it possible to send a custom url if somebody entered his email.
The url should be safe, like the confirmation_url.
Is the confirmation URL in the email you need to send static or it should be composed individually for every user? What I didn’t quite understand is what’s behind that URL? What should it open? Our confirmation URLs open the confirmation page AND they also change the status of the user as confirmed. Please describe the functionality that should be behind the confirmation URL in your app.
Yes, but at step 3 i want to add that this is an specific form for the user (like confirmation url).
The Form should echo something like hello @username.
This is important, because if the user submits the form, the entry should be saved with the email-adress that gets the confirmation_url
I’d start with creating a page with the form. To customize the page for a specific user, the page should be accepting a parameter, it can be anything that identifies the user, for instance, their email address or objectId. In UI Builder, these parameters are accessible through the Page Data block. For example, the logic below gets the value for the email parameter passed into the page:
So this is acutally very basicly, but when i register a user, then he gets the email from template.
Now i want to add my “dynamic text” so if a user registred he gets the url which you described above.
But i dont want to use the object-id instead of the email adress, because else it is very easy to hack.
Or do you have an alternative like an token (similar to confirmation_url) which is safe and contains the needing information?!
