I want to provide an absolute link to someone's medical license after searching and finding it on this page:

https://www.breeze.ca.gov/datamart/searchByName.do

But when I get the search result I want the link is as follows...

https://www.breeze.ca.gov/datamart/detailsCADCA.do?selector=false&selectorType=&selectorReturnUrl=&anchor=72cd392.0.0

...which is not a link I can email to someone else.

Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Why can't you email that to someone else? You posted it here just fine? –  Al E. Dec 12 '13 at 16:07

This not about any web app but just pasting links –  Eight Days of Malaise Dec 16 '13 at 0:56

the stuff that you see after the ? in the second url are the parameters that the server uses to fetch the license. what you want would be possible if all licenses had a static url to them which doesn't appear to be the case, moreover the site requires a login and we cannot access the pages above.

If you want to share the license with somebody you either need to ask them to follow the steps you used to login to the site and search for the license, or most probably since its an image that is being displayed and you can download it and send it to whoever you are trying to share with.
