Send parameters to component via URL

Hi people,

I have created an AbstractPortalComponent that, after some processing, generates an URL for the KM Navigation Component, opening a particular KM folder via request.redirect() method. Below is an example of this URL:


It works fine. However, it always displays the KM Folder using the default LayoutSet. I tried to send the LayoutSet name via request parameter (of course using the same name as in a regular KM Navigation iView) together with the URL above, but it does not work:


Have you guys faced similar issue before?

Thanks in advance

Hi Fernando,

Probably already a presentation setting on the folder is set. In this case, since the folder settings have a higher priority than the iview settings (in NW04(s)), the iView parameter is not taken into account. More details on

You could try to overcome the situation by using the parameter "layoutSetMode=force", which assures that the iView parameter overrules all other settings.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,
