Kiosk Mode... Playlist

Morning,

I use the Playlist option to run some of my screens through various area’s… is they a way to use the &kiosk option in the URL to force all pages in the playlist to be in kiosk mode.

Cheers.

It should stay in kiosk mode since this fix (just need to press d k to go into kiosk mode):

Or are you asking something else?

Pressing D K takes away the light grey menu but leaves the name and grafana icon. Adding &kiosk into your URL completely hides the whole top bar. That is what I would like to do, however have it apply to the playlist not a single page open.

Cheers.

What version of Grafana are you using? They should be exactly the same. I tested on http://play.grafana.org/dashboard/db/big-dashboard?orgId=1 and I could not see any difference.

With &kiosk:

With d k:

We are getting confused here. It works with that and works well.

However I am referring to Playlists. Even if you add the command to your playlist url “https://grafana:3000/playlists/play/1”, even if you add “https://grafana:3000/playlists/play/1&kiosk” it then moves to the URL’s in the playlist they don’t contain the &kiosk part of the URL.

Is there a way to modify the URL of what is in the playlist?

I still don’t understand the above. But anyway. The kiosk parameter works for playlists too. It is a query string parameter. The & means “and” and is used when there are multiple parameters. In this case, you only have one parameter so no & character is needed but you need the question mark character ? to separate the url from the query string. (Read more about query strings here)

Like this:

http://localhost:3000/playlists/play/1?kiosk

Daniel,

Thank you using ?kiosk instead of &kiosk works.

Cheers.
