Its seems like there is an issue in generating URL from Grafana dashboard, check the below example.
Dashboard Name Generated ID in link My testing DASHBOARD my-testing-dashboard My$$$$$$testing-------DASHBOARD my-testing-dashboard My@@@@@testing@DASHBOARD myatatatatattestingatdashboard
You can see that irrespective of the special character used(exception: @, ‘@’ converted to ‘at’) and its occurrence, they are converted to 'single - ’ in the id.
So if have two dashboard with name, ‘My# Dashboard’, ‘My – Dashboard’ both will have the same id in link ‘my-dashboard’.
So now if i try to link a panel to dashboard using Drilldown/ detail link, using the either of the name( ‘My# Dashboard’, ‘My – Dashboard’). I can’t grantee which dashboard will actually get linked.
