I'm struggling to find documentation on this, if I load up a dashboard their appears to be two query parameters we can add: '?_g=' and '&_a='
Currently I have a string like this on the end of my Kibana URL:
When the dashboard loads like this is displays a time range and applies a filter of case='0001'.(keyword field) This works but I'm looking for clarification on a few things.
- The difference between '?_g=' and '&_a=' ?
- Any documentation on creating these strings?
- Way to shorten link? The link is pretty ugly to send around or display in a visualization. I would like a way to shorten it by only passing in the case=0001 query and nothing else, can this be passed in as a simple filter and not the long meta string.
I had looked at using the Kibana shorten URL API, but thought it would work better if instead of assigning me a random ID, it assigned me something I could choose.
