Query Template Links allow you to define a query parameter in a Honeycomb URL. When you load this URL in your browser, it runs the specified query and displays the results. The query parameter syntax for a basic
COUNT with a filter might look like this:
For example, clicking the following URL will load a
P95(response_time_ms) broken down by endpoint on our public Quick Start dataset:
Note: Embedding Query Template Links (or other Honeycomb pages) within an
iframe is currently not supported.
The simplest way to get a Query Template Link is to use an existing query as a reference. Use our Query Builder to construct a useful query, then click on the Share button > Get Query Template Link to expose a modal with a copy/pastable URL.
The query parameter is a JSON string, optionally containing any of the keys described below. All fields are optional, but a query with no
calculations values will have
COUNT applied automatically.
See Query Specification for details on defining a query via JSON.
