This documentation relates to an older version 1.7 of the Rich Filters Add-on for JIRA. See the documentation index for other versions.
Dashboard state permalinks are URLs that encode the state of the rich filter gadgets on the dashboard. Later, you can use the URL to open the dashboard and restore the rich filter gadgets to the same state.
In order to generate a dashboard state permalink, open the menu of any Rich Filter Controller gadget on the dashboard and select the option Permalink.
This will open a dialog containing a generated URL which encodes the state of all the rich filter gadgets on the dashboard.
You can bookmark this URL or you can send it to someone else. When the URL is opened, the rich filter gadgets will be restored to the same state as when the link was generated: same quick filters selected, same selected views and the same sorting criteria in the Rich Filter Results gadgets.
If you have more than one controller or more than one rich filter in the dashboard, the dashboard state permalink will encode the state of all controllers for all rich filters, no matter from which controller you generate the URL. All the Rich Filter Controllers on the dashboard generate the same permalink.
