Public links allow users to share their saved explorations, dashboards, and collections in Hashboard with others on the public internet. With a public link, someone can access a view-only version of the given resource without the need to log in to Hashboard.
Anyone with the
UPDATE_PUBLIC_SHARING permission (those with the
Owner system role by default) can turn on the public link for a resource.
We ensure that those visiting a public link can neither make any edits to the underlying resource(s) nor can they view any data outside of the filters specified by your resource(s).
- Open a saved exploration, dashboard, or collection in Hashboard.
- Click the
Sharedropdown at the top right corner and select the
Share as Linkoption.
- In the modal that opens, click the toggle next to
Public Linkto turn it
ON. The link that appears is now active for anyone on the web to visit.
- Copy that link and include it wherever you please.
Public links for collections include every resource at the top level of the collection but no resources in sub-collections. To share a sub-collection, you must create a separate public link for it.
To turn off a public link, simply toggle
Public Link to
OFF in the
Share as Link modal.
Once you do this, users will no longer be able to load that public link. If you ever turn the public link back on for that resource, we reactivate the old link, so you don't need to worry about resending the link to everyone who already had it.
Public links are automatically turned off when a resource is trashed (and reactivated if the resource is untrashed), but not when a resource is made private.
