Sideview Utils can do this through the URLLoader module.

The URLLoader module will use the parameter name that was specified in the url. Not sure what you're unsure about. Sideview utils has great examples on how to use the module.

Yes, I know - you can use the URLLoader module precisely for that. That is, you click on a link in the external application, this link takes you to a view in Splunk which has prepopulated field values based on the parameters submitted in the URL.
