Description (last modified by dread) (diff)

As a

third-party interface to a CKAN instance

I want to

link to CKAN's package creation/editing pages. On 'commit', have the user redirected back to a URL in my interface that I can control. Also, when the package is created new, I need to be told what the new package's name is on return.


  1. The 'return URL' is passed as a parameter to CKAN.
  2. CKAN substitutes the package name into the return URL.


Front-end links to: http://ca.ckan.net/package/new?return_to=http://datadotgc.ca/dataset/<NAME> (but with the parameter URL-encoded)

When finished editing and the user commits, CKAN redirects the user to: http://datadotgc.ca/dataset/pollution_data

On discussion with rgrp it's clear that it's also useful to set the redirect url in a config variable - then the client doesn't have to change. This was done in cset:b9fdd208dd45
