Hide External URL

Hello All,

 

 

Using Power Bi desktop. 

I created a Dashbaord.  One of the button take user out to external web site.

 

I do not want user to see the external URL.  

 

What to do?  Help will be appreciated. 

 

Thanks

HI @sdhn ,

 

If I understand your query correctly, one the user clicks the button a web page opens in the browser something like below: 

You don't want user to see the url link in the browser as highlighted below. Right?

If that's the case, I don't think you can drive this visibility from Power BI as it is an external website.

Power BI just gives the user a capability to open a webpage in browser. It doesn't control the URL shown in the bowser.

 

Thanks,

Pragati

Hello,

Instead of showing a link, you can go under the Format pane (the rolling paintbrush under Visualizations) and under 'Values" there is an option to turn on URL icon. That way, a small icon button will be diaplyed instead of your URL.

I hope this helps, if so, please accept this as a solution.

HI @sdhn ,

 

Can you add some screenshots as details here please?

It's hard to understand your question.

Hi Pragati

 

I meant,

 

here is an example: ( use fake site)

 

There is a Button , if user click on button it will take user www.oracle.com/linux/dnnote   (external site)

 

I want when user click on Button , it will take to the external web site but without displaying URL.

May be just "dnnote "

 

Everything under the site is beneficial for us but we do not want to show the website address.

 

Thanks
