While having the entire state of the application in the url is very handy, there are times when it gets too long to share on certain platforms. irc messages for example have a hard limit of 510 characters.

I think it would be pretty simple to store application states in elasticsearch when a short url is desired.

I'd also like to support this. When sharing in certain messaging platforms new Kibana 4 links are often truncated unexpected in the application due to the "))" at the end. A shortened URL would help greatly.

I also noticed that when copy/pasting urls between apps, sometimes the clickable url is truncated at the '[' character. This character is generally in the index name pattern part of the URL.

+1 Saving a dashboard, search or visualization should generate a short sharable permalink instead of having to share the full URI with all parameters. We're having the same issues as others with links breaking shared via chat etc. Embedding is also problematic with these URLs

+1 would like to have something like http://kibana:5601/#/dashboard/Dashboard without the need for all the parameters. I think that kind of link should just load the desired dashboard as it is saved in kibana. Perhaps it would be nice to have a parameter about the default time span that is used, like http://kibana:5601/#/dashboard/Dashboard?timespan=30d

agreed - the url should reference the dashboard id and maybe time refresh. The rest of the state should be save. But that prevents sharing adhoc state, so shorterner is still needed for that. Or a "bookmark state" button where you can save those all as "Sub dashboards"

+1. This is also useful when sharing/bookmarking K4 dashboard urls across users. Currently, if the dashboard changes, the rison-urls (while powerful and flexible) have to be modified for each user. If there is a shortened bookmark url "pointer" to the actual rison-url definition for the dashboard, the users can just bookmark it and does not have to go and modify their bookmarked url every time the dashboard changes.

+1, urls ending with )) are impossible to paste to some chats like HipChat, making it really hard to share ad hoc queries

+1 and I prefer @timroes comment with:

Dashboard: http://kibana:5601/#/dashboard/Dashboard
Time picker: http://kibana:5601/#/dashboard/Dashboard?timespan=30d

Right now we're having to send all kibana urls through a shortener so we can share them with other people, and then having to update or make a new shortened url when the dashboard gets changed.

Hate having to put such ridiculously long URLs in our team's documentation. Just let me link to the saved dashboard like I could in Kibana3...
