Pass filter to dashboard URL in Markdown Menu?

(Mick Mahoney) #1


I have a Markdown Menu with which I use to navigate between dashboards.

Example of menu URL:


Anyone know of how I can pass a filter to that dashboard as part of the Markdown
I know the filter gets passed in URL (Im using Kibana 5.0.0-alpha2) as &_a - I've extracted an example below - but I'm not sure if/how I can append this to my Markdown URL

If you apply the filter to the dashboard, click "Share", copy the URL and place it in the Markdown. Does that accomplish what you're looking to do?

Perfect - many thanks :slight_smile:

I've found that sometimes the brackets in the URLs get parsed incorrectly - resulting in malformed links.

Its best to replace ( with %28, and ) with %29 in the URL before using it in the Markdown link
