Linking to dashboard pages

Sometimes it might be efficient to link to a specific dashboard page in your Community posts.

Old info

zone pages

These are pages that redirect to a CF zone/domain page. What you should do is go to the page in your own dashboard, then get the part of the URL after the domain name. ex:

dash.Cloudflare.com/cl0udfl4aracc0untid/example.com/analytics/traffic

The route value is that last part. Now, when sharing the link, format it as

dash.cloudflare.com/redirect?zone=analytics/traffic

When clicking this link, Cloudflare will show the account/domain selector. Upon selecting a domain, the first page to show up is the “analytics traffic” page, instead of the overview page.

account pages

These work the same as zone pages, but instead, the query string should be ?account=.

ex. the following url:

dash.Cloudflare.com/cl0udfl4aracc0untid/members

would be represented as

dash.cloudflare.com/redirect?account=members

The only special page is the support page: dash.cloudflare.com/redirect?account=support . This isn’t actually linked in the dashboard at the moment.

Very handy indeed. I had clicked a link you shared earlier this week and thought the query string looked different. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks to @Withheld on Cloudflare activated for a different account - #2 by Withheld - you can also link to zone pages by just using the page name at the end, without ?zone=. Eg https://dash.cloudflare.com/crypto.

Thank you for this, @judge - it is very useful. Mainly for my own benefit, as I answer most questions on mobile and this makes it a lot easier, I have made a list of all the common ones. Thought I would post it here in case it is of use to anyone else.

I have also made it a wiki post in case I have made any mistakes or missed any :smile:

That’s a really great list! And, soon to be deprecated… :astonished:

I’ve made a note to remind me when this happens at the end of Q1. Legacy deep links will continue to work until the end of Q1 2020 at which point only new deep links will be supported. I’ll push out a tip with a Legacy migration guide for reference.

Following up on this conversation to share a bit of detail on deep links to the dash.

The schema is changing at the end of March. The previous schema for Dashboard Deep Links used query parameters of the form “?zone={resource}” for zone-level resources, and “?account={resource}” for account-level resources.

While this mostly affects our dash team, the schema change does change how we share links with folks in the Community. Going forward, deep linking to Dashboard is more complicated than just a hyperlink, since content is scoped to particular values such as accountId and zoneName that we don’t (usually) know. e.g., “dash.cloudflare.com/{accountId}/{zoneName}/traffic”. In order to resolve any potentially unknown url path parameters, Deep Links to Dashboard are constructed with a query parameter of the form “dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/{zoneResource}”. A query parameter “to” is added to Dashboard’s root URL with a dynamic URL path as its value. :account and :zone indicate that the account and zone parameters are unknown, and the user will be routed to an account selector and zone selector pages to select those resources, if necessary.

I am sorting the wiki post now, and will change it to reflect the new format! Thanks @cloonan :slight_smile:

I haven’t tested every single one of these, but following the new format, they should all work!

They work now as well as the old ones.

The old ones will fail end of March.

Will the links already published in the community using the old format be automatically updated to the new one?

I don’t think so, but I doubt they are used a huge amount when reading past topics. I don’t think they are used too much in general here, and where they are, probably only by the original poster. Not sure though!

Just looked and they are used ~90 times, will check for any high traffic topics and see if those can be changed. They are also used in ~5 tutorials and I will fix those nearer the change.
