Yesterday, while configuring a Unified Service Desk to automatically display a dashboard, I needed to obtain the Dashboard GUID.

The first option was to ‘manually’ analyze the values in the Query String.

But this option is prone to error. Developers may copy less or more than the GUID because of the URL encoding.

To minimize this risk, I found this online tool: URL Decoder.

What is URL Decoder?

It decodes the encoded URL and makes it easier for us to view the information.

Dynamics 365 – Decode URL with Confidence

How does it work?

Just paste the encoded URL (Query String) in the upper box and click Decode.

The decoded result will be shown in the lower box.

From here, I can easily copy and be assured that what I’m copying is correct.

Cheers!
