Per Dashboard model, persistent URLs and API changes, the dashboard URL format is:
Say, I have a dashboard called “Here goes some title”. So the
slug part of the URL will be
here-goes-some-title. Now, if I change the
uid from its initial random value to
here-goes-some-title, then the final URL will be:
Which doesn’t look too nice. Even if the
uid and title were just one word long, still such duplication doesn’t look nice.
slug part be dropped somehow? The dashboard is perfectly discoverable by just
http://grafana.example.com/d/here-goes-some-title, but once it’s opened, the
slug part is added to the URL in the address bar.
slug seems to be a bit useless, because even
http://grafana.example.com/d/here-goes-some-title/pklfjhltdhsdkdigntkdyvhdsdspfkb still opens the “Here goes some title” dashboard.
