Add QMetry Custom Dashboard Embedded URL in Confluence

The user who has created a custom dashboard can generate an embedded URL and share the link. The embedded URL gives access over live report data in read-only mode to the users who do not have direct access to QMetry application (i.e. Ability to view custom dashboard without any authentication). This link can be used to share the dashboard with other users or for integration with third-party integrations.

Steps to generate Embedded URL for Custom Dashboard

  1. Go to the QMetry Custom Dashboard > My Dashboard > select the dashboard that you would like to share.

  2. Open the Edit Dashboard screen. The screen opens with the three tabs on it: Users, Project/Role and Embedded URL.

  3. Open the Embedded URL tab.

  4. Click Generate to generate the embedded URL.


It is to be noted that the URL remains valid and active unless it is regenerated or deleted.
