Pass data contact form 7. [_url] not passed

I have a contact 7 form I need to pass variables to my plugin. All variables are passed ok except $url = $formData['_url'];.The form sends the email and shows the [_url] variable. This is the code that should pass the [_url] variable. Any ideas?
fnction contactform7_before_send_mail( $contact_form ) {
  $C_data->skip_mail = true;
  global $wpdb;
  $title = $contact_form->title();

  $submission = wpcf7_Submission::get_instance();
  if ( $submission ) {
    $formData = $submission->get_posted_data();
  }


  $name = $formData['your-name'];
   $email = $formData['your-email'];
   $phone = $formData['your-phone'];
   $mensaje = $formData['your-message'];
  $url = $formData['_url'];

Do you have a declared url hidden field in your form?

eg:
[hidden _url]


<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function(){
var url= window.location.href;  
jQuery('input.wpcf7-form-control.wpcf7-hidden').attr("value",url) ;    
 });    
</script>

Like this:
In the form:
[hidden _url]
<label> Nombre  (requerido)
    [text* your-name] </label>

<label> Email  (requerido)
    [email* your-email] </label>

And in the body;
url: [_url]

And in the plugin:

<script> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ var url= window.location.href;   jQuery('input.wpcf7-form-control.wpcf7-hidden').attr("value",url) ;      });     </script>


do you get the value for $url = $formData['_url']? 
Yes
Good. Glad to hear that.
Hi sorry my bad. Not reading the variable

I want to know where the script goes. If I add it to the plugin I get an error

You can add the script directly inside the form's template editor section. Put try..catch block and share the error details for further inspection.

<script> 
jQuery(document).ready(function()
{ 
try{
  var url= window.location.href;  
  alert('url='+url); 
  jQuery('input.wpcf7-form-control.wpcf7-hidden').attr("value",url) ;  
  }catch(e){
   alert(e);
  }  
});     
</script>

The issue with using javascript to get that data is it can easily be manipulated.

I have a small article on this

$url = $submission->get_meta('url')
