[RFE] The webadmin search bar content should be bookmarkable in the browser
When a search is entered, or a user manually navigates to an entity and thus updates the search bar, the URL should be reflected and synchronized [with either a #place or ?parameter of some kind]. This will allow re-accessing that URL from a browser bookmark (or copy/paste), and would then auto-navigate the user back to that exact entity, even if user is logged out when initiating the request.
Also consider the current "bookmarks" functionality in webadmin (not the browser bookmarks I am talking about above) when working on this feature. There may be a redundancy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
even though it is an RFE it does bring lots of value so keeping in z stream.
Comment from Greg:
this feature will allow you to use browser
bookmarks to save your current location in the application and return to it
later. Basically, the current entity and place are synchronized into the URL
bar of your browser, which together with some previous infrastructure allows
you to use your browser's bookmark to go directly to an entity from being
logged out. The same is true for search queries on main views.
