I am a developer specializing in web applications. Currently, I work on a large application built on Java, JRuby, and Rails. I've also written web services in Python using Django and the combination of Pyramid and Cornice. I am interested in practical programming education, service-oriented architecture and design, and functional programming. My current personal interest is Clojure.

comment RESTful Api: Send email with links to client URL
No. You're still redirecting to a partner-controlled URL. Redirecting has advantages, but you must still redirect to something; and my answer covers how that something is to be generated.

comment RESTful Api: Send email with links to client URL
@Hey: The problem in the original question is, "How do you include the [partner's] URL in an email?" My question answers that by explaining how to generate a URL based on the partner's settings. Your answer simply says to redirect from the API endpoint to that URL; you still have to generate a URL, the same as if you were putting it in an email. It does not solve the problem stated in the question, but changes the location where it occurs.

Yes, but that's exactly the same that I told you to do in my answer. It just relocates it from being in the email to being in a redirect.

How are you going to redirect to a path specific to each email? Either you need to communicate the request I'd, or the client's redirect will be the same for everyone.

Who is the entity which owns this URL in your original question? => http://client.com/dashboard/{business_name}/enquiries/{enquiry_id}

comment RESTful Api: Send email with links to client URL
These are very standard industry terms. "You" is taken to mean your team or your company; thus "URLs you control" means URLs that point to your application (where application means the code that you're asking a question about). "Client" is a bad term, because it has a specific meaning in API terms; I have changed that to "partner" throughout, and it refers to the other company (whose emails you are sending).
