Opening Agent UI On POST Submission

In this part, we will launch the agent ui interface for creating ad-hoc correspondence on form submission.
This article will walk you through the steps involved in opening agent ui interface on submitting a form. Typical use case is for customer service agent to fill in a form with some input parameters and on form submission agent ui is opened with data prepopulated from form data model prefill service.The input parameters to the form data model prefill service are extracted from the form submission.
The following video shows use case

String accountNumber = request.getParameter("accountnumber"))
ParameterMap parameterMap = new ParameterMap();
RequestParameter icLetterId[] = new RequestParameter[1];
icLetterId[0] = new FormFieldRequestParameter("/content/dam/formsanddocuments/retirementstatementprint");
parameterMap.put("documentId", icLetterId);
RequestParameter Random[] = new RequestParameter[1];
Random[0] = new FormFieldRequestParameter("209457");
parameterMap.put("Random", Random);
Map map = new HashMap();
CustomParameterRequest wrapperRequest = new CustomParameterRequest(slingRequest,parameterMap,"GET");
wrapperRequest.getRequestDispatcher("/aem/forms/createcorrespondence.html").include(wrapperRequest, response);

Line 1 : Get the accountnumber from the requestparameter
Line 2-8: Create parameter map and set appropriate keys and values to reflect the documentId,Random.
Line 9-10: Create another Map object to hold the input parameter defined in the Form Data Model.
Line 11: Set the slingRequest attribute "paramMap"
Line 12-13: Forward the request to the servlet
To test this capability on your server
Make sure your Form Data Model's Get operation's input parameter is bound to Request Attribute called "accountnumber" for this to work. If you change the name of the bindingvalue to any other name, make sure the change is reflected on line 25 of the POST.jsp
