Connect ShortPoint with shared hub navigation

You want to create your own Navigation menu and connect it to your Hub site shared global navigation.

Step 1: Connect your ShortPoint Element to ShortPoint REST API

Add any element to the page In this example, I am going to add Tiles ShortPoint but this solution is not restricted to it, you can use any ShortPoint which has connect tab. 

Select REST API connect and provide following URL:

<Site Collection Url>/_api/web/HubSiteData

<Site Collection Url>:  Please provide URL of the site which is either the Hub site OR the Associated site collection to hub site who's navigation we want.

Step 2: Extract the navigation from the result returned

While the connect tab is selected, scroll down and enable the option called Enable Advanced Settings and provide following code in Map Results function

var hubSiteData = JSON.parse(data.d.HubSiteData);
return hubSiteData.navigation;

Click Connect button

That's it, now you should be able to use Title and URL fields in your mapping area as shown below:

Happy connecting!
