I am currently able to login inside salesforce using just a session id https://eu5.salesforce.com/secur/frontdoor.jsp?sid=sessionId

I now want to be able to redirect to a record page by passing 1 additional parameters &retUrl=/0032400000GRVvYAAX

Can anyone help with this?

It works pretty much as you've suggested. Send the users browser to:


Remember to URL encode the forward slash in the retURL parameter.

As Rahul Sharma commented, check the casing of retURL as well. The casing needs to match exactly.

    It even works with &retURL=/0032400000GRVvYAAX, could be due to fact that retURL is case sensitive!

    @RahulSharma The casing on the ID given does appear to be correct for the AAX suffix in this case. Feb 12 '17 at 19:13

    Sorry, I meant parameter name retURL is case-sensitive not the Id or value. So, encoding is good to have but is not a problem in this example.
