I am shortly going to try to integrate products such as outlook to specific forms in the E-Business suite. Assuming that there is AD integration ( we're working on that). I want to auto generate a email to a given user that has the embedded link to the desired form. Hence my questions -You need to follow the steps in these docs.
1) is this easily achieved?
2) Will I definitely avoid my users having to sign on again?Yes.
3) Can I pass parameters in the URL link that can be used to prefill the form?AFAIK, it is not possible.
4) Am I able to hook into a ( web service ?) API so avoid showing the form in the first place.?Not for the login process. For other processes, you can use a web service.
