It is an inference in this example to say that the URL is being shared when the sentence says the view is being shared. If the view is being shared, then is the example in active voice with a vague context? If the URL is being shared then how is the sentence not passive voice?

That doesn't make it passive voice. As a sentence, it's active voice
and imperative mood (albeit missing an article and a period).

How can anyone find passive voice in "Share a Custom View via URL"?
It's a just heading, but if it were a sentence, it would be active.
