Hi there,

Can you give an example of the use-case that you have in mind?

Usually you would specify your route paths as follows:

  - path: /your-path-here

And then on your application level you would handle any additional arguments and not at the App Platform level.

For example, with Node.js and the above route it would look like this:

app.get('/your-path-here/:id', function (req, res) {
    res.send('The ID is: ' +;

Feel free to share more information about exactly what your end-goal is and I will be happy to advise you further!
