I am creating a dashboard with a set of panels and I want a simple drill-down function that links to another dashboard on the same Grafana instance.
If I look at the URL of an example dashboard on our dev Grafana instance I see this:
Trying to do the same thing on our staging instance I see:
From what I could find online, this arbitrary string is some sort of UID.

In other words, I want a link to a dashboard, independent of my personal user ID.
