Copy the URL of a non-responsive dashboard

It is not possible to copy a dashboard URL from the browser. You can, however, create a URL that opens the current view of the dashboard, including tabs and breakdown elements. When the link is followed, the ServiceNow platform frame around the dashboard is not included.

Before you begin

  1. Navigate to Self-Service > Dashboards or Performance Analytics > Dashboards.
  2. Select a dashboard.
  3. (Optional) Select a specific tab, breakdown, and breakdown element.
  4. Click the Copy URL icon (The copy URL icon).
