One Click Access

One Click Access is used to create a link href or set as iFrame source that you can give your users for seamless access for new registration or logging into their member page. Using a variety of URL parameters, you are able to send key identity and demographic information about your members. You are also able to use parameter sets in the URL to control the logic. This article provides you with all the information you need to create and customize your One Click Access link. 

Base URL and Parameters

To get started using the One Click Access feature, follow these steps to retrieve your link:

  1.  Log into your account and go to the Program details page.
  2. Under Integrations, select either Standalone Site, Widget, or iFrame.
  3. Scroll down to the One Click Access section and copy the Base URL link
  4. Add desired Parameters to the link. 
  5. Paste this link into your desired location. 

To customize your Base URL link so that it will pull the necessary information to sign up or login your members, you will need to add parameters to the link. Here is a template of how to configure your One Click Access link:

One Click Access = [Your Base URL] + ?Parameter = value. 

All subsequent parameters are joined by an “&” symbol.

Parameter Encoding

Each parameter needs to individually be encoded. This is so odd characters don't get messed up in the URL/browser. This can be done in a variety of ways, depending on your coding environment.

This site shows what a encoded URL would look like in addition to a better understanding of URL encoding is and here's how to do it in javascript.

Here are some examples:

  • Should the URL open a iframe friendly page, the widget, or a full page?

It’s important to debug your link to make sure it is working correctly and pulling all the correct data. The debug parameter is used to display access link generated data, debugging information, the result of the One Click Access link (did it fail, succeed, etc.) and a message detailing the results. 

You can also view every result in the Integration Event Logs, located on the Main Admin Page > Logs > Integration Events.  There are other integration events there, but these will be under Type:  “One Click Access”
