Using URL Parameters for ConfigurationLocate this document in the navigation structure

Configuration parameters are parameters that are added to the start URL of an application and contain the required configuration information.

The URL parameter name is composed of the name of the configuration option and the sap-ui- prefix.

Note The W3C proposed that the data- prefix is not needed and not even allowed here as all URL parameters are kind of custom parameters.

The value of a URL parameter is of type string and the same type mapping as for HTML attributes applies. However, URLs require a different encoding than HTML; they use, for example % encoding instead of entity encoding.

For security reasons, only some configuration options can be set via URL parameters. An application can set the ignoreUrlParameters option to true to disable URL configuration parameters completely.
