I use a FTF URL that incorporates our EBSCO customer ID and group.

https://resolver.ebscohost.com/openurl?authtype=ip,cookie,guest,uid&custid=current&groupid=main<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fresolver.ebscohost.com%2Fopenurl%3Fauthtype%3Dip%2Ccookie%2Cguest%2Cuid%26custid%3Dcurrent%26groupid%3Dmain&data=02%7C01%7Cdwesterfield%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cc666070e8c9c4903a46908d715095699%7Ccfc7b13c12964387b3085de08fd13c99%7C1%7C0%7C637001002167295437&sdata=m84bEl9eKlqPDChzu0S2PIJiTqCo%2Fc17deLb8O1XXSo%3D&reserved=0>

I usually put our EZproxy stem in front of it for a variety of reasons.

Just to clarify the previous two answers:

If you are trying to fill in the field that other websites ask for the base URL for your openurl resolver (for the site in question to create openurl-standard-compliant links into your FTF), Linda's answer is the one you want:
http://resolver.ebscohost.com/openurl <https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fresolver.ebscohost.com%2Fopenurl&data=02%7C01%7Cdwesterfield%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cc666070e8c9c4903a46908d715095699%7Ccfc7b13c12964387b3085de08fd13c99%7C1%7C0%7C637001002167305437&sdata=YDpalgz9qug%2F6aPAowmjGq8zeSMSeyF%2FFJ3YwSOvGV8%3D&reserved=0>

If you are working with a site that isn't following the openurl standard but wants to create persistent lookup links with a template URL that their site then inserts a search term, like the ISSN into, you would use something like Cynthia's link.

For instance, filling out the HeinOnline "branding" form, I gave them both in the appropriate respective fields.

Here is what I gave them for the second one, for us (EBSCO customer ID uprince):
http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=guest,ip&CustID=uprince&direct=true&bquery=#ISSN_NUMBER#&type=0&db=edspub<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebscohost.com%2Flogin.aspx%3Fauthtype%3Dguest%2Cip%26CustID%3Duprince%26direct%3Dtrue%26bquery%3D%23ISSN_NUMBER%23%26type%3D0%26db%3Dedspub&data=02%7C01%7Cdwesterfield%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cc666070e8c9c4903a46908d715095699%7Ccfc7b13c12964387b3085de08fd13c99%7C1%7C0%7C637001002167305437&sdata=ZwKIS9%2FmxhFfvGApAztk6qx2R77Mv5PSv6ds4LFiK1U%3D&reserved=0>

where #ISSN_NUMBER# is what HeinOnline wanted in the link as the placeholder where they will substitute that info into the link.

Note by the way for this second kind of link, you have a choice on whether to use the PFI profile interface, or the "edspub" pseudo-database within the "eds" interface.
These have different settings in Customize Services in eadmin, which also means different "bottom branding" custom widgets can be included in each.

Diane -  I just set this up for FullText Finder in our main III menus. I haven’t put it into the link resolver yet.

For FullText Finder, I started with our ATLA direct URL and changed the profile to point to FTF

Subject: [Eril-l] Base URL for EBSCO EDS/FtF?

Hi,

My library is switching to the EDS discovery layer and Full Text Finder package. My question is, how do I determine the Base URL? Anybody who has this already set up, can you send me examples? In the past with other link resolvers it’s been a pretty simple “URL plus ID #” format, but for whatever reason I’m having trouble figuring this out for EBSCO.

Bonus question: is the Base URL for BrowZine different than for other vendors, or the same?

Thanks in advance,
