Link to a custom service request and custom categories from the self service portal


I created a service catalog item and want that to link to a custom template that I created and only show a filtered number of categories.


The documentation states to append ?populateSR_id=<Template ID#> for the template and ?selectedGroupName=<Name of User Group> for the category.


Both work indivually, but how can I combine them?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Michael Reznicek

To link a service catalog item to a custom template and show a filtered number of categories, you can combine the parameters in the URL. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Identify the Template ID and User Group Name: Make sure you have the correct Template ID and the User Group Name that you want to filter.

  2. Combine the Parameters: You can combine the parameters by appending them with an ampersand (&) in the URL. The format will be as follows:

[http://HOSTNAME:PORT/path_to_service_catalog_item?populateSR_id=](http://HOSTNAME:PORT/path_to_service_catalog_item?populateSR_id=)<Template ID#>&selectedGroupName=<Name of User Group>  
  1. Example: If your Template ID is 123 and the User Group Name is 'Support', the URL will look like this:
  1. Test the URL: Enter the combined URL in your browser to ensure it works as expected.
