Short URL redirect problem Internet Explorer


#1

Hi guys,

I have a Dashboard in Kibana (6.5.0) which has a pretty long URL (more than 2000 characters). That's why I cannot open the dashboard in Internet Explorer. Generating a
short URL ( https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/6.5/url-shortening-api-api-shorten-url.html ) didn't help, because the short URL is being redirected to the 'long' one, that can't be opened from Internet Explorer. So how can I make my dashboard work in IE?

Best regards
Stancho

Hi
You need to use the short url setting in advanced settings
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/advanced-options.html
and Kibana tracks UI state in the URL, which can lead to problems when there is a lot of information there and the URL gets very long. Enabling " state:storeInSessionStorage " - will store parts of the state in your browser session instead, to keep the URL shorter.

Thanks
