Hi ddarmand

you can add a HTML link to the navigation menu, if you add something like this to your default navigation menu:

   <a href="/app/YourAppName">YourAppName</a>

either do this in the Manager » User interface » Navigation menus » default or by editing the file nav.xml in the path $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/YourAppName/default/data/ui/nav

hope this helps

cheers, MuS

Are you sure it's the ?, and not the ampersands?

Try changing any & characters to &amp; in the url.

e.g.

<a href="/app/lookup_editor/lookup_edit?owner=nobody&amp;namespace=my_app&amp;lookup=my_lookup&amp;type=kv">Edit Lookup</a>

Sounds to me as if you have a similar but different question. Please create a new question rather than writing an answer to a six year old question.
