Apologies if this is a simple question:

I want to send someone a url so that they can edit an item in a table (view) so something like /index.php/?option=com_xyz&view=abc&layout=def&id=10

However, I want to identify the record using another field instead of "id". Can I specify another key instead "id" without forking and coding it? It looks to me is if id is hard coded in orm but I may well have missed it.

Thanks for your help!

For me, it is not possible to send a link without the id of your item. rewriting the address does only change the url into the browser. you always need the id of your element to access the page.
the better solution for me is to create a redirect page like this :

the joomla SEO setting can hide the url of your item
