Redirect to Zenbu “rules” or filtered Zenbu lists?

Support Request

We are using Zenbu and have set up specific rules that hide certain statuses, etc. Then we use Zoo Flexible Admin to link directly to these “pre-filtered” rules for our sub-admin group. This sort of falls down when a user is publishing/editing an entry and Deviant redirects them to the Zenbu module. In any other case, Deviant redirecting to Zenbu is awesome, but it’s redirecting the user to the vanilla Zenbu edit list for that channel with no filters applied. Now that Zenbu has rules available to entire user groups, would it be possible to redirect to a Zenbu rule rather than to “Zenbu Module”?

I’d even be open to a hack to add Zenbu rules to the list of available choices in the dropdowns on the Deviant settings page.

Hmm, I know this used to work (sending back to the filtered Zenbu list), but perhaps Zenbu is no longer using the “filter” $_GET value (much like EE does) to store the state of the entry list? I will investigate.

After some testing, this appears to be working correctly for us. I’ll go back to the client to make sure I’m not missing something, or that they weren’t doing something odd.

I think the main difference lies in editing an existing entry and publishing a new one. Editing a existing entry does take us back to the rule we want, if we came from there - because it was in the URL, Deviant apparently knows how to get back to the list of filtered entries. Publishing a new entry takes us back to the generic Zenbu list that we don’t want to see - we always want to go back to the rule. So the issue here is wil new items.

Thanks for the clarification. Will look into redirecting to saved Zenbu searches.

Was the redirect to Zenbu filtered entries ever implemented?

Deviant will bring you back to filtered entries/saved searches when you edit an entry from said Zenbu list, but it can’t currently bring you to a Zenbu Saved Search after publishing a new entry from a non-Zenbu page of the control panel. Will look at the current version of Zenbu and see if there is a way though.
