What exactly gets saved when you save a workspace in Eikon?

We are trying to persist certain application details using query parameters. However when we make changes to a url/query parameter in our application and then save the workspace in Eikon, when we close and reopen that workspace, the last url/query parameter is often not what gets restored. Instead it seems to use prior ones.

When I Save Workspace in Eikon, what exactly about my application window is being saved? Is there a way to access a Workspace's details? Or to interact with a Workspace to force it to save certain things?

Hi @mbarr

I understand that you're working on web app and you are using JET API right? If so, you can use JET.Archive.put('key', 'anyvalue') to save the data to the workspace and JET.Archive.get('key') to restore the value. The data you saved, will be persisted together with the workspace for that window instance. Please be aware that what's saved is not available to another app window.
