What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
7.5.7 on MacOS 13.2.1
What are you trying to achieve?
When I go to an URL with a + sign in it, I want it to stay as a + sign.
How are you trying to achieve it?
By going to any grafana URL with a + sign in it.
The + sign is converted to %20.
What did you expect to happen?
I expect the + sign to not change to %20.
Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
N/A, can try it anywhere on a fresh 7.5.x install. It is solved in 8.x and beyond though, and I’d like to know how.
Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
In what context is this URL you are referring to? a data link?
Hello @yosiasz no particular context, just go to any Grafana install (version 7 and below) and add a + anywhere in the URL in your browser address bar and press enter. You’ll see the + sign getting converted to %20, which is not the case in version 8+.
This makes adding any links to dashboards problematic if you want to have + symbols in your variables values. Since it is effectively solved in version 8+ though, I was hoping to learn how it was solved because I want to stay on version 7 for now.
