I noticed that Kibana is using the _g and _a parameters in the URL to let the user set a context for elements such as Time Picker and application specific controls. This seems to be the standard way to pass state through URI.
For instance, it is common for a URL such as the one below to set a time window as well as pick what columns are displayed in the discover mode.
My Question is : How does one do the same thing within the context of a Kibana plugin ? I have a plugin that works well but the user is required to change to a desired state every time, after they land on a default page. I want to provide a dynamic URL which stores session state and helps someone land directly at a desired state.
