Shorter more meaningful URLs for Dashboards.

Are there any plans to allow for more meaningful urls for dashboards instead of that long random generated URL?

Something like https://www.site24x7.com/public/dashboard/<name_of_dashboard>

Excellent suggestion framirez. We will include this in forthcoming updates. 

I would encourage you to post your feature enhancement or issues for custom dashboard in https://www.site24x7.com/community/customized-dashboards so that it is easy to manage them.

Hi Framirez,

Looking at the example URL that you shared, I assume you are looking for accessing these nice URL dashboards with authentication. I am afraid that may not be possible as nice URLs become easier to guess and can compromise the security of your data. 

Can you please clarify your intent again? For eg. the URLs of our our public sharable widgets / GUIs like that of Status Pages etc, the URLs are quite long and cryptic in nature. I am not sure how we can give a "nice"URL.

We use Status Pages and Dashboards and would like to have the name of the status page or dashboard as the end of the URL instead of the super long random characters (118 for status page). 

currently the URLs are :

Dashboard:

https://www.site24x7.com/app/client#/home/dashboards/<20-charachter-string>

for a status page:

https://www.site24x7.com/sv.do?id=<118-charachter-string>

 

We use these internally only so I don't see why there would be concern for security.

 

Another question I have is, why are the new custom dashboards only setup as public?

https://www.site24x7.com/public/dashboard/<121-charachter-string>

Does this mean that the dashboard is accessible outside our user base? Like, can anyone on the internet see these dashboards?

 

ps.. I may have the character count wrong, but they are long)
