Direct Links to Traces

It can be useful to launch directly into a trace waterfall from a Trace Id from third party services. For example, you might wire an error reporting tool to launch directly into a trace in Honeycomb.

Construct a URL with this template:

http://ui.honeycomb.io/<team>/datasets/<dataset>/trace?trace_id=<traceId>
  &trace_start_ts=<ts>
  &trace_end_ts=<ts>

In this URL:

The query engine will look for traces with this trace_id in the specified time range. If no time range is specified, it will look from the current time, to two hours ago.

If only a trace_start is provided, and no end, then the query engine will look for traces within ten minutes of the starting time of the start.

Note that the trace waterfall may miss some spans if the query range is too narrow. On the other hand, the query engine may take longer to look across broader time periods.

Note: Embedding Trace waterfalls (or other Honeycomb pages) within an iframe is currently not supported.
