Custom URL builder GUI or CLI command

The support documentation for ITNM suggests that various components have a URL that can be used by external systems to link directly into ITNM network hop and other utilities. However, the documentation is misleading or incorrect. Regardless, like other components of ITNM it would be nice to have a GUI or at least a CLI command that would help to build a custom URL for the purposes of outside tools linking in.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.
