Question:

I have a requirement to be able to set a role automatically on login (other than the default role).

Is it possible to pass a role via a URL to force a login via a certain role?

Environment:
CA Service Desk Manager 12.9CA Service Desk Manager 14.1CA Service Desk Manager 17.0
Answer:

Its not possible to pass roles within a URL as that is something that is picked up upon login.  There are no separate URLs generated for separate roles.  The reason is because you can dynamically change roles within SDM using the role drop-down on the top , which allows you to pick from the roles assigned to your access type, or to your contact record directly.
