"Edit chart" button no longer opening figure in chart studio

I noticed that the “Edit chart” button no longer redirect to chart studio. Is this an intentional update?

If so, what was the reason for this? I found it to be a really helpful feature for debugging.

Yikes, I think we missed something in our recent redirect handling. It was not intentional. @nicolaskruchten might know more.

Confirmed: this was an oversight and we should have a fix in place tomorrow, with apologies.

@nicolaskruchten, is there any update on the fix? Edit chart button keeps redirecting me to: https://plotly.com/chart-studio-help/getting-data/

Hi @mbkupfer,

Yes, we’ve investigated and it looks like there’s not much we can do to keep the old behaviour going without a small modification to your code, unfortunately. You’ll have to set the plotlyServerURL key in your config prop to "https://chart-studio.plotly.com", in addition to the the showLink key being set to True, like this:

dcc.Graph(figure=fig, config=dict(showLink=True, plotlyServerURL="https://chart-studio.plotly.com"))

No worries, it’s a simple patch. Works like a charm!

I am trying to use the plotly R library. and even with setting the config:

plotlygraph <- plotly::config(plotplot, plotlyServerURL = 'https://chart-studio.plotly.com', showLink=T)

it still goes that page
plotly .com/chart-studio-help/getting-data/

Is there a solution for R?

This would be amazing information to add to the documentation under the “showEditInChartStudio” bullet here. https://dash.plotly.com/dash-core-components/graph
