@gmmorris another one which needs your input ..Thank you

Hi @ElasticLiver ,
I'm a little confused, as I'm not sure which feature you're referring to.

Can you point me to the docs for the specific alert type you're trying to use?


Hi @ElasticLiver,

As part of improving navigation experience in 7.11
we changed the URL structure. The recent Kibana version supports an older URL structure, i.e. URLs from Kibana 7.5 work in 7.11+ but not vice versa.

I'd recommend if possible to use the relevant Kibana version.

Also, your example from the 7.5 KIbana seems like a new format actually (we used to have # in the older version).
And the URL from 7.12 is malformed, I tried to decode it and received an error. Seems like the end of the URL is cut off.
