About defining a server from a URL

You can add BIG-IP® server definitions to F5 Access from a URL. You can provide these URLs to users, so they can create and/or start VPN connections without having to manually start the application.
Use the following URL and parameters to create a server:
f5access://create?server=server_address[&
parameter1
=
value1
&
parameter2
=
value2
...]
Special characters in parameters must be URL-encoded.
The syntax to define a server from a URL follows.
server
The server address is either a DNS name or an IP address.
name
An optional description of the server.
username
An optional parameter used to specify the user name with which to start the connection. When the
username
is specified without a
password
, then an authentication prompt is displayed. If no
username
is specified during server creation, the user is prompted for it at session initiation, if required.
password
An optional parameter used to specify the password with which to start the server connection. When the
password
parameter is specified, it is used as a one-time password and not saved in the configuration.
logon_mode
Specifies whether the logon mode is the standard logon (
native
) or web logon (
web
). The default logon mode is
native
.
