Configuring the Connection
Besides the basic parameters required to establish a connection, you can send additional settings parameters to customize the connection the way you want.
There are three ways to customize the one-time-url connection:
1. Using an Access Profile that will act as a template to the connection.
2. Using an Access Profile and overriding some parameters by sending them on the queryString.
3. Configuring each setting parameter on the queryString manually.
Find below what parameters you should send in order to configure the connection with each one of these modes:
Mode 1. Using Access Profiles as template for the Connection:
Parameter
What it means
Type/format
Default
model (access key)
On this parameter you should send the Profile Key, to have this profile taken as the Connection template.
string
Profile Key
Mode 2. Overriding the profile settings:
Parameter
What it means
Type/format
Default
overrideDefaults
Set this property to true, to have the Profile settings overridden by the parameters sent on the queryString. Then configure the individual settings you want to add to the Profile connection template
If you send this parameter as false, only the profile configuration will be taken.
boolean
true,false
false
Mode 3. Configuring each setting individually:
If you do not send the model parameter or even override its settings (mode 2), you will be able to configure each Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Server setting individually.
Find below the list of the parameters you can configure manually:

1 . By informing the username and password on the URL you will be setting the "Use these credentials" option. If you don't inform username or password, the behavior will follow the "Ask for new credentials" options'.
The "Use the authenticated credentials" option is not suppose to work with the One Time URL, because in this case there is no prior authentication with a valid user for the remote machine.
To add each of the parameters to the queryString, you have to concatenate an "&" symbol, the name of the parameter, the "=" symbol and the value assigned to the parameter, as shown on the example below :
...&password=myPassword&[email protected][email protected]
