To get URL params in CakePHP, you can make use of the request object. Here's how you can do it:

  1. In your controller action, access the request object using the $this->request variable.
public function myAction() {
    $params = $this->request->getQueryParams();
    // $params will contain all the query parameters

    // Alternatively, to get a specific parameter by name, you can use the following:
    //$paramValue = $this->request->getQuery('paramName');

    // Your code logic here...

  1. You can then access the query parameters by using the getQueryParams() method, which returns an array containing all the query parameters. Alternatively, you can use the getQuery() method to get a specific parameter by name.
  2. You can also access URL parameters using the $this->request->getParam() method, which retrieves parameters from routing and plugins. The getParam() method allows you to access URL parameters captured by the routing system. For example, if your URL is "/users/view/5", you can access "5" as follows:
$userID = $this->request->getParam('pass.0');

In the example above, 'pass' represents the passed URL parameters, and 0 indicates the index of the parameter you want to retrieve (in this case, the first parameter).

That's it! You can now access and use the URL parameters in your CakePHP application.
