Keyword Type Description

recordType

RecordType

The record type for the record(s).

recordIds

Any Type Array

The identifiers of the record(s) to return URLs for.

Returns

Usage considerations

The user executing the function must have at least viewer rights to the record type or the expression will fail and an error will occur. They do not need to have viewer rights to the record(s).

For a process model record type, the recordIds value is the process Id. For a data store entity record type, it is the primary key for the entity.

If the recordIds value is null or empty, the function returns the URL for the record list view of the recordType value record type.

If the record type for the recordType value does not exist, the expression will fail and an error will occur.

If a user does not have at least viewer rights to the record or record type in the returned URL, the user will see an error when trying to open the URL.
