Deep Link Navigation

Enable seamless collaboration

The product takes advantage of deep links for navigation as well as collaboration. A deep link is an URL that includes the exact path to the page in the product as well as information about UI state (e.g. which filter is currently active or which partition is currently selected).

Collaboration is as easy as copying and pasting the URL and sending it to a colleague. As long as they have access to the installation, they can enter the URL into the browser’s address bar and be taken to exactly the view that you currently see.

Deep links not only allow for seamless collaboration, but they can also help us to track down bugs that users are experiencing by providing us with exactly what state the product was in when a bug was experienced
