Is there a URL Prefix variable in Simple XML?

Communicator

Hello,

I am trying to link to a python controller from a simple xml html panel. I want to get the URL prefix, http://localhost:8000/, dynamically and not have to hard code it. In simple xml, is there a variable for the URL prefix (similar to {{SPLUNKWEBURLPREFIX}} in javascript)?

    <form>
    ....
  <row>
    <panel>
     <html> <a href="http://localhost:8000/en-US/custom/test_app/testcontroller">Link to controller</a>   </html>
    ...
  </panel>  
  </row>
    </form>

I would recommend switching to a relative path. That way, the view will work even if the server IP or port changes, if it uses a different language, or a custom root endpoint.

Below is a modified version that should work for you:

    <form>
  ...
  <row>
    <panel>
     <html> <a href="/custom/test_app/testcontroller">Link to controller</a>   </html>
 ...
  </panel>  
  </row>
    </form>

I totally agree, in this day and age, no link should be hard coded, all should use a relative path. Browsers are now intelligent enough to detect that all you want to do is use the same root URL but with a different path on the end.
