he should doubt if anyone cares that it is urgent to him.

Forums typically do not "do" urgent - unless there is some sort of payment in advance. . .

Why does someone believe this is urgent?

If this is somehow truly urgent, the seniors or support people in your organization should have been asked first. If no one in the organization is capable of doing this, maybe it shouldn't be done.

If this is just an exercise to learn, there should be no urgency.
Have a good one

Regardless, it's probably best to start with the vendor's product documentation, and go from there:

Suggest you start with a fresh idea of your own, do something and come back with questions... you'll find more friends around here.
