What is ts=XXXXXXX in the url
Question

Hi, I would like to ask what is "_ts=XXXXX" in the end of the URL?

Thanks


Example:

https://MyName.outsystemscloud.com/App_Name/Screen1?_ts=627030364676346374

"ts" stands for timestamp. It's just some internal OutSystems parameter that is added when you're developing. It shouldn't appear in production.

Somehow, this is annoying me. I am redirecting to and URL and it is placing that timestamp wich leads to a wrong URL, something like this:

CreateUpdateNew?NewsId=40001?_ts=637696389381640439

The page doesnt load the record even tho the NewId is being passed. Any Fix? (suposing the number of ts is always changing

Hello Ricardo, sorry for the long delay, I just saw this comment.

Ìf the _ts parameter is added, it still should respect the url structure.

Two times the ? is incorrect, as the _ts within your URL is the second parameter, the & sign should be used.

Therefor the correct URL should be:
CreateUpdateNew?NewsId=40001&_ts=637696389381640439
