Dynamic URL datasorce type in nfeed plugin

We need to configure the nfeed plugin to query a rest Web Service type with a dynamic parameter in the url, for example, the value of a custom field, ie, it would be something like the following: http://mydomain:myport/path/myreq?param1=value_of_custom_field. We can not attack with a database type datasource, just URL type, since we only have the Web Service rest. Is it possible to configure the plugin with a URL datasource type that supports a dynamic parameter in the url?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Joaquin,

Just wanted to share the solution for this issue ->



Many thanks Nicolas

Please could you share the solution? the ticket is reserved. I have the same need but in addition my custom field has some space, so I need aslo to URL encode the value

the link provided is not accessible.Could you please share the solution here.

It's nearly 4 years since the answer was posted, and Valiantys have rewritten their documentation to deal with the updates to their app.  I don't know that there is a new direct equivalent page for the current version, but their docs are good and do cover this - could you take a look at them?

The current documentation for adding a URL data source for Elements Connect (formerly nFeed) is available here.
If you have problems setting it up, don't hesitate to contact support:

In documentation it is given how to add path param for URL field configuration.

"/" is appended to URL while provide value in the URL path.

but i want to add query param

my URL should be like


since URL path is appending "/" my api url looks like

rest/api/search?variable=/value and field configuration is failing
