Copy a responsive dashboard's URL

You can generate a URL for a dashboard that opens the current view of the dashboard, including tabs and breakdown elements. The ServiceNow platform frame around the dashboards is not included in the link. You cannot copy a dashboard's URL from the browser.

Before you begin

You must be able to access the dashboard.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the dashboard whose URL you want to copy.
  2. (Optional) Select a specific tab, breakdown, and breakdown element.
  3. Click the context menu () and select Copy Dashboard URL.

Result

The dashboard URL is copied to your clipboard. Some browsers will prompt you to manually copy the URL to your clipboard.

What to do next

Share the URL with other users.

Dashboard URL format

You can link to a Performance Analytics dashboard from within ServiceNow.

All URLs for dashboards follow this format:https://<instance>.service-now.com/$pa_dashboard.do?.

This base URL is followed by several optional query parameters.
