Response bodyedit

The response body will have a top level urlId property that contains the shortened URL token for the provided request body.


POST api/shorten_url
  "url": "/app/kibana#/dashboard?_g=()&_a=(description:'',filters:!(),fullScreenMode:!f,options:(darkTheme:!f,hidePanelTitles:!f,useMargins:!t),panels:!((embeddableConfig:(),gridData:(h:15,i:'1',w:24,x:0,y:0),id:'8f4d0c00-4c86-11e8-b3d7-01146121b73d',panelIndex:'1',type:visualization,version:'7.0.0-alpha1')),query:(language:lucene,query:''),timeRestore:!f,title:'New%20Dashboard',viewMode:edit)"

A successful call returns a response code of 200 and a response body containing a JSON structure similar to the following example:

  "urlId": "f73b295ff92718b26bc94edac766d8e3"

A shortened Kibana URL can then be constructed for easier sharing. http://localhost:5601/goto/f73b295ff92718b26bc94edac766d8e3
