  • Thanks for your reply, would you please elaborate a little bit where to use this function. Actually I want send form values to a third party using curl when the user clicks on 'Save Config' button on the configuration page. Thanks

  • The code in the answer will retrieve the value from storage according to the path specified. Assign that to a variable and then use the variable in your cURL message.
